Jon Tarry is a contemporary artist working in sculpture, light and sound. Drawing is central to a practice which ranges from gallery exhibitions to complex architectural work. Recent research explores sound as a generator of complex forms and structures, leading to new work. These reflexive pieces apply computation systems where sound modelling data creates new outcomes, informing the senses.
Tarry’s practice has engaged with complex relationships between art, music and time-based media platforms. Recent highlights include: “Dark Mirror White Noise” at the 2016 Perth International Arts Festival, Western Australia, “Processing Sound” at the Loft Kluge Redwood Studio in Los Angeles 2015 and “Interventions” at MDW, St Elmo Fort, Valletta 2014.
As well as multiple solo shows in Perth and Los Angeles, Tarry has collaborated with musicians in the experimental jazz and independent music scene and is currently working on projects across light, sound art and environment works.
