Bridgette Ashton is a British conceptual artist. Her practice crosses sculpture, printmaking and film with a core emphasis on drawing and a focus on notions of time, place and narrative.
Nostalgia and a palpable sense of time-past pervade her work. Her mostly small-scale objects, drawings and photographs are often flagrantly wistful, referencing pre-1980s popular culture and celebrating pastiche and melancholy. At times her work retains indications of materiality and process, sometimes alluding to the obsessiveness of the hobbyist.
Solo exhibitions include Whitstable Satellite at the Whitstable Biennale; Newlyn Art Gallery, Cornwall; Russell-Cotes Museum & Art Gallery, Bournemouth
