Australian artist Lindy Lee presents a new series of bronze and metal works. 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.

Within the busy world in which we live there is something to be said about the search of emptiness. The Eastern spiritual mantras allow us to stop and reflect. It allows us to think about life and who we are.

With the traditional ideas of splashing ink on paper, Lindy Lee throws molten bronze to create a kaleidoscope of objects somehow both figurative and abstract. The metal splats form a balance mirrored by their imperfections seemingly pushing and pulling each other within their composition. In this exhibition, Lee contemplates the Chinese dragon and fire with both paper and metal works in the embodiment of cosmic and elemental forces.
