Bridie Gillman’s practice is focused on the nature and process of negotiating cross-cultural experiences. By drawing on her time spent in Indonesia as a child and further travel as an adult, Gillman's interdisciplinary practice articulates experiences of existing between places and cultures.
Gillman is an emerging artist based in Brisbane who completed her Bachelor of Fine Art with Honours at the Queensland College of Art in 2013. Since graduating she has conducted residencies and exhibited in Indonesia and Malaysia, as well as domestically.
