Bewabon Shilling and Tanya Cunnington formed the Birdbath Collaboration in 2010. Both artists in their own rite, the collaboration was a way for each to explore different avenues of creativity.
Since their inception, they have collaborated on paintings, sculptures and film. They had their first major Exhibition of paintings in the summer of 2015 at a Pop-Up Gallery opened by the collective. Sculptures and Paintings at Lee Contemporary Art is the first time that the collective has exhibited their sculptures in a gallery setting.
The two artists take turns working on each piece together. When one is at a loss of what to do next the other steps in. In order for this process to be successful, it is obvious that each half of the Collective has a huge mutual respect for what the other artist is able to contribute.
