Lindy Lee's work came to prominence in the 1980s and has evolved in tandem with key developments in Australian art, including the turn towards Asia. The first major survey of this artist's practice, ‘Lindy Lee - The Dark of Absolute Freedom’ exhibition explores Lee's acclaimed early photocopy work, and the work that evolved following her embrace of Buddhism and her Chinese heritage. Also included are recent works in which she employs pyrographic techniques to evoke the infinity of the universe, and compositions comprising flung bronze. Works have been sourced from a range of public and private collections.
