Lindy Lee is an Australian artist (born Brisbane 1954). Lee’s practice explores her Chinese ancestry through Taoism and Ch’an (Zen) Buddhism – philosophies that see humanity and nature as inextricably linked.
Symbolic gestures and processes that call on the element of chance are often used to produce a galaxy of images that embody the intimate connections between human existence and the cosmos. Lee’s works are intentionally slow to impart their secrets. Rather than singular visual statements, they are thoughtful objects where meaning emerges from sustained meditation.
For almost a decade UAP has been working alongside Lee to create public artworks and editions that are on view across Australia and China.
Her recent solo exhibitions include, Lindy Lee: Moon in a Dew Drop, Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney (2021); The Seamless Tomb, Sullivan+Strumpf, Sydney (2017); Lindy Lee: The Dark of Absolute Freedom, the University of Queensland Art Museum, Brisbane (2014); Universal Record of the Flame, 10 Chancery Lane, Hong Kong (2013); and Birth and Death, Campbelltown Art Centre, Sydney (2007).
Lindy Lee is represented by Sullivan+Strumpf in Sydney and Sutton Gallery in Melbourne.
