Perth born Shiloh studied Fine Arts at Claremont School of Art(graduating in 2000). Shiloh’s Art practice has always been driven by her passion of design and Architecture. After extending her Art studies at university she transferred into Architecture. During this time of study (2007) she was selected to show her work at the 2008 Sculptures by the Sea at Cottesloe. Later in 2008 Shiloh created an exhibition titled ‘AAA’, Anonymous Architects and Artists where she invited practising Artists and Architect to submit works on the proviso that they relinquished creative input in the installation process and their names did not appear on the work. During this exhibition Shiloh also exhibited her work upstairs as a solo show. In 2009 she was invited back to exhibit at Sculptures by the Sea. Unfortunately due to full time work commitments Shiloh’s Art practice came to a halt. During this long break she has moved to the Gold Gold Coast and started her own business in event operations. 2020 was a year of change as event/music work ceased Shiloh took this time to reflect on her true passions (not only for music) but her creative drive.
2021 SWELL ARTWORK – Sway, Shiloh Perry
Sway is an artwork to be experienced. Initially Sway was inspired by a Japanese legend, ‘Senbazuru’ meaning folding 1000 origami cranes in a year to be granted a wish. However, after spending time on the work it has become something much more. The artist has taken a post-modernist approach in the art work and like Bernard Tcshumi’s Parc De Villette in Paris, the viewer’s experience and interaction has become the main focus. This piece is to be watched and enjoyed for as long or as little as the viewer chooses.
Come and see for yourself at SWELL Sculpture Festival, Pacific Parade, Currumbin 10-19 September.
