Bridie Gillman is a multidisciplinary artist whose practice spans painting, photography, sculpture and video. Drawing from her childhood spent in Indonesia, ideas of place - our experience and memories of a place - underpin her work.
Bridie is an emerging artist based in Brisbane, Australia, 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.
Bridie is part of Woven, a collective of artists who each have personal ties to Indonesia.
In addition to her practice, Bridie is co-director of STABLE, a contemporary art space in Brisbane and working with Brisbane and Elsewhere Art Un-Triennial (BEAUT) as International Community Engagement Officer.
Bridie Gillman is represented by Edwina Corlette Gallery.
