LINDY LEE: MOON IN A DEW DROP

3 JUNE – 28 AUGUST 2022

Lindy Lee is one of the most respected contemporary artists working in Australia today. Influential Australian Chinese artist, Lindy Lee, explores identity, history, spirituality and our relationship to the cosmos. She creates meditative works using light, shadow and scale across many artforms. Moon in a Dew Drop takes an in-depth look at four decades of extraordinary practice.

Working across a range of disciplines including painting, sculpture, installation and public art, Lee draws on her Australian and Chinese heritage to develop works that engage with the history of art, cultural authenticity, personal identity and the cosmos. Key influences are the philosophies of Daoism and Ch’an (Zen) Buddhism, which explore the connections between humanity and nature.

Take in shimmering, meditative and thought-provoking works in her major survey exhibition which draws on her experience of living between two cultures.

In Conversation

Acclaimed public speaker and master of a good yarn, Ron Bradfield Jr. sat down with visual artist Lindy Lee at John Curtin Gallery to talk with her about her traveling exhibition “Moon in a Dewdrop”, which is on show at John Curtin Gallery until 28 August 2022.
This broad-ranging conversation covers topics such as how the practice of Zen Buddhism has informed Lindy’s art practice, how her mother became an expert document forger and underground gold trader at 19, the overwhelming beauty of Western Australia’s North West, and the often hidden effects of intergenerational trauma.

Ron Bradfield Jnr is a saltwater man from Bardi Country, north of Broome but grew up in Geraldton, Western Australia.
He now calls Whadjuk Boodjar (Perth) his home. Ron has spoken and shared stories, locally, nationally and internationally.
