Bridie Gillman’s practice has focused on the hybridity that often results as part of the process of negotiating cross-cultural experiences. Drawing from her background experiences of living in both Australia and Indonesia, she explore ways in which materials can elicit memory, and are capable of articulating those experiences of awkwardness, the hesitant and the unknown.
Gillman is an emerging artist based in Brisbane and completed her Bachelor of Fine Art with Honours at Queensland College of Art in 2013. Since graduating she has conducted a residency in Yogyakarta, Indonesia and exhibited nationally and internationally.
