The Bas has been honoured to showcase works from diverse, thought-provoking artists.
Find out more about some of the artists who have exhibited at the Bas:
Julie's inspiration is drawn from within her life, the people she meets, global cultures, history, music and stories as well as the natural and built environments.
In Yvonne's paintings she connects and emphasises the relationship between the painted surface and the intimacy of her prints, drawings and artist’s books.
Alison has always used dyeing and surface design techniques, she likes experimenting with new ways of combining and incorporating these into her work.
Julie enjoys incorporating textile-related techniques into her felt work, as well as working with recycled materials and found objects.
As a painting major with printmaking and textiles as her secondaries at art school, fibre has been an intrinsic part of Lorna's life as an artist for many years.
Having spent most her life in the outback, Lola's work always returns to landscape, she is endlessly fascinated by the energy in nature.
Amanda sees her paintings as being partly self-referential, inspired by the particular surrounding, be it landscape or other, which evokes a particular sentiment.
Terry discovered the Canberra School of Art where he learnt to work in clay, to make moulds and to use ciment fondu and eventually working in bronze.
Working across mediums, Lee’s practice combines photography, video, sound and text in projects that are often underpinned with institutional and found archives.
Cathie's art practice focuses on her experiences as she interacts with the world, the people she meets and their stories.
Roslyn began introducing found materials into her art forms, she searches the landscape for usable material. These materials inform the work of place and hold memory.
Composer, writer, gardener and home builder Amadis takes a transdisciplinary and holistic approach to creativity.
Raewyn draws inspiration from the natural beauty of the region’s landscape, the pristine bushland, mountains, rivers and beaches.
Stephanie’s practice uses hyper-realism and elements of chiaroscuro techniques to explore vulnerability and thoughtful moments of contemplation in her subjects.
Interior design influences both Stephanie's textile and sculptural work through the exploration and juxtaposition of form, light, colour and space.
Mischi's inspiration is from the environment she lives in and the materials at hand. She let's it take its own path and she is guided by it.
