Lindy McSwan


Lindy McSwan completed a Bachelor of Arts (Fine Art) Honours, in Object Based Practice – Gold and Silversmithing at RMIT University in 2014. She received the Craft Victoria, Fresh! Sofitel on Collins Award in 2012, and in 2015, an Australia Council for the Arts, ArtStart Grant. Lindy participated in a number of exhibitions in the program of events during Radiant Pavilion in 2015.


Lindy’s current practice primarily focuses on the vessel. Having opportunities to travel remotely, she has developed collections of work interpreting aesthetics unique to the Australian landscape. She 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 from a macro view.
