About Dr Stuart Bailey

Stuart Bailey's work examines ignorance, delusion and self-interest and their impact on individual politics. Collage and printmedia are the conceptual motors of Bailey's research; he uses his media to analyse and generate ideas and uncover hidden concerns, through the jarring contrasts and ambiguous parallels created when assembling found images. These works on paper are translated into sculptural installations and video that are populated by disconnected and deluded publics.

Stuart Bailey was born in Newcastle, Australia. He studied Printmedia at Canberra School of Art, ANU and Kyoto Seika University, Japan. He is currently lecturing in the Printmedia studio at Sydney College of the Arts.
