LINDY LEE Artists’ Talk and Group Critique with Year 12 Visual Art Class

“Lindy Lee’s imparting words of wisdom left me with a feeling of ultimate peace and taught me that there is so much more to the processes that embody an artist’s practice that extend beyond the concept. Lee said that we have to have “the courage and the heart to pursue something” which resonated deeply with me in terms of my own artist’s practice.”

Lindy Lee
By Lucy Stranger, September 26, 2017
“For Lindy Lee the recording and questioning of self has been a constant point of examination in her practice. As a Chinese-Australian artist, her work has been critical to visualising the experience of Chinese diaspora in a country that has historically whitewashed its multiculturalism. Anchoring her practice and dual identity is her Zen Buddhism, which has propelled her current engagement with the elemental through heat, metal and fire. Now mid-career, Lindy is taking this to epic proportions. In her latest work she is pushing concept and scale with the creation of some of her largest pieces yet. For an artist who has long been in dialogue with her dual transient identities, Lindy Lee is pushing past boundaries and forging her own mark as an international artist.”
