Briony Law is a visual artist currently based in Brisbane, Australia who works primarily with sculpture, moving image and installation. Her practice explores aspects of human ecology, urbanisation and the complex systems of mediation at play in parks, reserves and conservation areas. Her work observes social practices in these places and notions of nature connectedness. The resulting artworks layer and contrast digital representations with physical material constructions as a means to investigate human use of natural environment elements. Through these assemblages she aims to examine the potential of mediation to indirectly and inherently inform Western perspectives and attitudes toward ecology.
Briony also works as a studio assistant for davisthomas and holds a BFA with Honours in Visual Arts (2017) from the Queensland University Technology. She has exhibited both nationally and internationally with projects at Boxcopy (Brisbane), Frank Moran Memorial Hall Gallery (Brisbane), The Block (Brisbane) and Ars Electronica Festival (Linz). Briony was awarded the Hilde Chenhall Memorial Scholarship in Visual Arts (2017).
Her involvement in collaborative projects includes “1:1” with Jacob Watton, Jaymis Loveday and Charles Henden for Robotronica (Brisbane) and the Ars Electronica Festival (Linz) and Jaymis Loveday’s “Mixed Reality” series at the Flowstate pavilion (Brisbane).
