Jeremy Bakker and Angela Pye

Jeremy Bakker is a visual artist from Melbourne, Australia who works across a variety of mediums including drawing, sculpture, photography and object-based artwork. He is interested in fugitive ways that complex ideas can be held within simple things. Jeremy applies manual processes and discreet gestures to commonplace objects and materials as a way of opening up a range of thoughts about time, presence and absence, impermanence, mortality and meaning.

Angela and Jeremy worked collaboratively on a residency project  Echigo-Tsumari Winter festival in Japan in 2012. In her own art practice, Angela explores the notion of intimacy and the relationship between the space of the human body and built environment. 

Jeremy and Angela will use the space and time provided by the residency at DCR to develop ideas for new work and establish new contacts.
