Sullivan+Strumpf is proud to announce their forthcoming exhibition featuring new works by acclaimed Chinese-Australian artist, Lindy Lee. “Lindy Lee: A tree more ancient than the forest it stands in” will be on display at their Zetland, Sydney premises from Thursday, May 4, until Saturday, May 27, 2023. Known for her contribution to contemporary art in Australia, Lee has gained international recognition over the years with her works increasingly moving into the public domain. She has undertaken numerous large-scale public commissions throughout Australia and internationally that focus on creating spaces of belonging and community. The upcoming exhibition presents an exciting opportunity to experience Lee’s latest creations in a more intimate gallery setting. Lee’s multi-disciplinary practice delves into the connections between humanity, nature, and the cosmos, and her process is one of co-creation with the universe. The artist interprets elemental materials of fire, water, metal, and wood, crafting her works accordingly. Informed by her evolving sense of self, as well as Daoism and Ch’an (Zen) Buddhism philosophies, Lee’s diverse works have garnered international recognition for translating and transmuting deeply personal experiences into the universal. Her works evoke a sense of wonder and intimate connection to existence. “In a career spanning more than 40 years, Lee has exhibited in over 150 exhibitions around Australia and internationally. She has created more than 40 public artworks, including large-scale sculptural commissions,” said a Sullivan+Strumpf spokesperson. The exhibition will showcase Lee’s latest body, including new sculptural forms in steel, bronze, and wood, in addition to works on paper. It’s the perfect opportunity… Read More
