Tarryn Gill and Pilar Mata Dupont

Tarryn Gill and Pilar Mata Dupont are amongst the brightest emerging artists in the country. Their tongue-in-cheek retakes map Hollywood glamour from the 1930s onto surf lifesavers, those beloved icons of the Australian beach. In the artists’ hands, retro allure is worked over by digital photography, with surprising and witty results.
