City & Guilds of London Art School
Bridgewater examines ideas around death and seeks to open up a conversation about issues not often discussed in society. Her work is constructed from bones and glass because of their qualities, inherent properties and symbolism of loss and memory. For example, glass is strong yet fragile, smooth when whole, sharp and dangerous when broken. It has the ability to encase and preserve, while remaining transparent. Bones, too, are remarkably strong and resilient, but become vulnerable, brittle and crumble with age. She transforms these materials; the glass and bone, into tactile sculptures that encourage the viewer to consider these themes both consciously through the corporeal motif or unconsciously, through the medium’s qualities.
