Artist

Belle Bassin

Belle Bassin is an experimental visual artist. In her practice, she pursues new formats and modes of presentation where she exhibits within urban and biological spaces, as well as within galleries and museums. Situated at the intersection of sculpture and performance, her work often fixates upon the sentient dimension of color and form. Her work is currently concerned with early female Abstraction, the psychic space of visions, and the occupation of bodies and space by invisible forces.

Belle Bassin has exhibited work at Heide Museum of Modern Art, Melbourne; TarraWarra Museum of Art, Melbourne; and University of Queensland Art Museum, Brisbane, among others.
