Liron Gilmore is a Sydney based cross-disciplinary artist who explores themes of survival, resilience and the possibility for transformation through experimentations with sculpture, video and installation. The ebb and flow of Nature is also a recurring metaphor within her work.

Like a shamanic arrangement of branches wrapped in thread and yarn, Gilmore’s sculptures are inspired by the bold markings displayed on the wings of insects where eyespots beguile, patterns disrupt and colours dazzle. She likens the gathering of fallen branches to an archaeological dig where a commonplace branch becomes a relic, the map of a life lived to be commemorated and embalmed.

At a distance the yarn gives the illusion of paint and branches resemble sinewy bones or insect-like appendages. A trick of the eye invites the viewer to take a closer look - perhaps for the first time at a tree branch causing a subtle shift in perception as the individual threads are revealed.

Liron holds a BA in Visual Communications, MA in Media Arts & Production and is a Lecturer in Creative Media. Her works have been exhibited in various galleries and festivals including Underbelly Arts Festival 2013, and Melbourne Fringe Festival 2013 and she is currently represented by M.Contemporary Gallery, Sydney.
