Briony Barr


Briony Barr is a visual artist whose practice investigates individual and collaborative rule-based drawing. As an extension of her individual process-based methodology, she regularly collaborates with scientists, as well as large groups of people, to generate artworks. In an on-going collaboration with physicist Andrew Melatos, she makes large-scale drawings (involving 20 or more participants) exploring the evolution of complex systems.

Briony earned her BFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York City and MFA from the Victorian College of Arts in Melbourne, Australia. She has exhibited in solo and group shows in Australia, Mexico, America and South Korea.

Most recently, her collaborative work Experiment #4 (part of the ongoing Drawing on Complexity series) was included in The Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art’s Inauguration show in Seoul.

Her work has been supported by an Australian Postgraduate Award (2008) and a New Work grant from the Australia Council for the Arts (2012).
