About the Artist

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. Gillman completed her Bachelor of Fine Art with Honours at the Queensland College of Art in 2013. Since graduating she has conducted residencies and exhibited throughout Australia and internationally, and in 2019 won the Moreton Bay Region Art Award. In addition to her practice, Gillman is co-director of STABLE, a contemporary art space in Brisbane as well as a co-director of BEAUT (Brisbane and Elsewhere Art Un-Triennial).
