Melbourne-born, Torquay-based artist Lillian O’Neil works with analogue photographic material from pre-digital archives to create large-scale, highly-detailed collages that are image atlases—both encyclopaedic and kaleidoscopic.


O’Neil has exhibited at Artspace, Sydney and Youkobo Art Space, Tokyo, and her work was included in The Body Electric at The National Gallery of Australia, and the 2020 National Photography Prize. Her work has been acquired by Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney; the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra; and the Sir Elton John Collection.

PHOTO Australia respectfully acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands upon which we work and live, and the rich and diverse Indigenous cultures across what is now called Australia. For over 60,000 years, Indigenous arts and culture have thrived on this sacred land, and we honour Elders and cultural leaders past and present. This was, and always will be, Aboriginal land.
