Further information

Lindy Lee is a senior Sydney based artist associated with appropriation practices of the 1980s and early 1990s. Lee's works from this period comprised of gridded photocopied details from old master portraits, overlaid with veils of paint and sometimes splattered with ink and wax. They considered our cultural distance from European 'masterpieces' as well as the aura of an original and our experience of it through ubiquitous reproductive technologies.
