Bridget Nicholson

    Visual Artist

    Bridget trained as an architect, and then worked in urban design for fifteen years. She migrated to the visual arts to enable exploration of the relationship between people, land and place. During her Masters in Visual Arts at the Australian National University, Bridget participated in the Environment Studio, which involved responding to environmental and social concerns in rural and regional areas. Bridget has further developed the practise through residencies across Australia. Her experiences have led to a focus on relationships with place and their formation through flora, fauna and cultural practice. Bridget works across media where materials and methods of making are part of the conceptual story.
