Hugo Michell Gallery welcomes the addition of Bridie Gillman to our represented artists!
Informed by ideas of place, and the ways in which experiences and memories shape personal perspective of a site, Bridie Gillman expresses these observations in paint using colour and abstract gestures. This process of responding to past experiences from the context of the studio environment offers a different way of connecting to a place.
Bridie Gillman graduated from Queensland College of Art with a Bachelor of Fine Art (First Class Honours) in 2013. Her work has been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions throughout Australia and internationally, including Museum of Brisbane, Brisbane; Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre, Sydney; The Walls, Gold Coast; Blindside, Melbourne and Run Amok, George Town, Malaysia. She was previously a finalist of the Brett Whiteley Travelling Art Scholarship, 15 Artists, the MAMA National Photography Prize, and in 2019 was winner of the Moreton Bay Region Art Award. She has undertaken residencies in Kedewatan, Indonesia, in 2019 and George Town, Malaysia, in 2015, among others.
Congratulations to Bridie on all of her achievements, we’re thrilled to be working with her!
