Laura Gillam was the Major Prize Winner of the 2017 RACT Insurance Tasmanian Portrait Prize with her entry; Worm as Chameleon.
Laura is a Hobart based visual artist who works in painting and installation and says that her work often draws inspiration from regional towns.
She grew up on the North West coast of Tasmania and currently lives in Franklin, a small town about an hour south of Hobart.
Her recent paintings are fluorescent assemblages of symbols taken from popular Australian iconography, mixed with animal and criminal motifs. Laura is interested in criminal and animal metaphors and the way that they are often used as a device to organise power. Her work also aims to question how popular icons can be used to form a deceptive and despotic notion of collective national identity.
Most recently Laura was awarded the Jim Bacon Memorial Scholarship which will assist her honours research at UTAS in 2018.
