Lindy McSwan


Lindy McSwan completed a Bachelor of Arts (Fine Art) Honours, in Object Based Practice – Gold and Silversmithing at RMIT University in 2014 and is currently undertaking her Masters degree at the same institution.


Lindy’s current practice focuses on the vessel. Having opportunities to travel remotely, she has developed a personal and unique interpretation of the aesthetics of the Australian environment. Lindy expresses notions of the sublime in these remote places where harsh extremes in weather sculpt the landscape. Her work reflects on both the wider panorama of the landscape and close observation of surface and detail.


Lindy’s solo exhibitions include Window to a Distant Landscape, Northcity4, Melbourne and Five Horizons, Sofitel on Collins, Melbourne. She has been involved in numerous group exhibitions across Australia, as well as in Japan and the Netherlands.  She received the Director’s Choice Award at the Victorian Craft Awards in 2015 and her work is in the Bluestone Collection, Melbourne and the W.E. McMillan Collection, RMIT.
