Bridget Kennedy is an Australian Contemporary artist currently living and working in Sydney.
With a background in painting and contemporary jewellery, more recently her work has explored installation, incorporating the viewer as participant to activate the artwork. The use of combining diverse, non-precious and organic materials with traditionally precious materials, continues an ongoing enquiry into environmental fragility, impermanence, choice and value. An emphasis on materiality and exploration allows the physical act of making to partly drive the outcome.
Bridget’s formative years of early childhood were spent in Fiji and the South Pacific. With cultural ties to the Philippines through her life partner, these influences and exchanges have informed her practice.
In 2008, she opened Studio 20/17, an artist run contemporary jewellery gallery in Sydney and has recently completed a coursework Masters in Studio Art at Sydney College of the Arts, Sydney University.
