Lindy Lee in Hong Kong
Australian artist Lindy Lee presents a new series of bronze and metal works at 10 Chancery Lane Gallery, Hong Kong 16 October-16 November 2013. The exhibition is titled Universal Record of the Flame.
The bronze fire stones have evolved from Lindy Lee’s ‘flung ink’ painting practice. The tradition of ‘flung ink’ is an ancient Chinese painting technique which is based on spontaneity. After a period of meditation, the artist takes up a cup of ink and splashes it across paper. Although the marks appear to be made from chance, the spiritual understanding is that the patterns formed are caused from the interconnection of all conditions that exist in the universe in that moment. Within these marks is embodied the energy and totality of the entire cosmos.
Lindy Lee is one of Australia’s foremost contemporary artists, with a career spanning three decades in Australia and internationally. Lindy Lee was the subject of a major exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney and was recently awarded the New Century Garden commission to create a new public space in Sydneys Chinatown. Lee’s work is held in a number of private and corporate collections including the National Gallery of Australia, the Art Gallery of New South Wales, the Museum of Contemporary Art, the Art Gallery of Western Australia and the Art Gallery of South Australia.
