Lindy Lee is one of Australia’s leading contemporary artists, whose practice explores her Chinese ancestry through Taoism and Ch’an (Zen) Buddhism – philosophies that see humanity and nature as inextricably linked.
Flowing Everywhere and Always mediates on the concept of the rain in Lee’s adopted home of the Northern Rivers: “It wasn’t until moving to the Northern Rivers almost 8 years ago, that I finally felt as though I had arrived home. The majesty of this region proffers daily observation of the horizon – that mysterious liminal realm that exists between heaven and earth. A practice which has become paramount to my work, and also my life. Although I started out examining issues of identity and belonging, my practice has since expanded into the examination of one’s place within the Cosmos – that inextricable matrix of being to which we all belong. When I invoke the rain and the fire in my work, I am calling forth this very profound connection of reciprocity and interdependence”.
The exhibition includes a series of scrolls, ‘rain works’, sculptures, and a room-scale installation. Lee is represented by Sullivan + Strumpf.
Opening Event: Friday 9 December, 6pm – 8pm.
