Connie Anthes is a multi-disciplinary artist currently based in Sydney. She makes paintings, objects and installations that investigate the mechanics of vision and spatial experience, often using non-traditional materials and methods to interrogate these ideas. Anthes has held solo shows in Sydney, Melbourne, Hobart, Launceston and Leipzig and been the recipient of numerous grants and residencies, both in Australia and abroad. She holds a Bachelor of Design (Hons) from University of Technology, Sydney and a Master of Fine Arts (Painting) from the National Art School, Sydney. Her work is currently represented in the collections of Artbank and Bathurst Regional Gallery. Anthes is an active member of the artist-run community, having been a past director of Firstdraft, Runway.org.au and a member of the MCA Artist Advisory Group. She recently co-founded Frontyard, a futuring initiative for the arts.
