Bronwyn Sargeson is an artist who primarily works with glass. Raised in Canberra on Ngunnawal/Ngambri country, Bronwyn completed a Bachelor of Visual Art majoring in Glass (2021) at the Australian National University’s School of Art and Design. Bronwyn was the recipient of multiple Emerging Artist Support Scheme Awards in 2021, including a residency at the Canberra Glassworks. She has completed workshops by leading artists within the field in Canberra (AUS), Adelaide (AUS) and Seattle (USA). Bronwyn regularly assists local. national and international artists of a high calibre and is part of the Exhibition Install and Registration teams at the National Gallery of Australia. 

Bronwyn’s work challenges notions of beauty often associated with glass. Although including playful elements of colour and form, her work tackles the jarring and often necessary medical procedures required for a chronically ill body. Bronwyn’s current work features anthropomorphic blown glass forms, often interacting with kiln formed glass elements. She uses this interaction as an exploration of the intervention between the body and medical apparatus. Driven by ongoing material investigation, her practice led research incorporates multiple studio glass processes, often in unconventional ways. Her exposure to various methods of using glass, through the workshops she has participated in, and her eagerness to push the material defines her practice. 

In the same way medical procedures are performed on the human body, she creates ambivalence between the graceful material of glass and harsh interferences into the surface. Her immersion into her current body of work and her ongoing practice seeks to realise the potential for transformation in these moments of pain.

I would like to acknowledge that my practice takes place on unceded Ngunnawal land. I pay my respects to elders past, present, and emerging and recognise the continuous knowledge held by this nation's First People.
