Bio...

 

Dr Emma Lindsay is a Visual Artist based in Brisbane, Australia. Lindsay studied painting at the National Art School (Sydney), the College of Fine Arts (UNSW), and graduated from the Queensland College of Art in 2009 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Hons 1) degree. She was awarded her practice-led research PhD (Visualising Extinction: Representing extinct and endangered species archived in global natural history museums) through RMIT Melbourne in 2016. Her paintings and interdisciplinary projects explore environmental issues relating to long-term anthropogenic activities and personal encounters with threatened, endangered and extinct species and their habitats during this time of the Anthropocene.

 

Winner of the 2016 Moreton Bay 2D Prize, she was a finalist in the Churchie National Emerging Art Exhibition (2011), the Redlands Westpac Emerging Art Prize (2012), and the Waterhouse Art Prize (2014). Awarded an Australia Council Artstart Grant (2010), her work became the subject of a Studio TV Artbreak documentary (2011)  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZHUd5dRSBbk. She was also awarded residencies at BAER Art Centre Artist Center, Iceland (2011), Hill End Murray’s Cottage Residency (Bathurst Regional Art Gallery, 2011), Point B Worklodge, New York (2014), and Artspace Mackay (2017).

 

Lindsay’s PhD Extinction Project ‘Extinction flock (29 extinct Australian bird specimens)’ paintings were shown at the Queensland Museum during the 2016 World Science Festival Brisbane, and are now held in the University of Queensland Art Museum Collection. The first phase of Lindsay’s latest studio research project, Great Barrier Reef | Anthropocene Project, will show at Artspace Mackay from November 2017 to February 2018.

 

Lindsay’s paintings are held in the public collections of the Baer Art Center (Iceland), Moreton Bay Regional Council, University of Queensland Art Museum, World Museum Liverpool, Queensland Museum, and in private collections in Australia, Canada, Iceland, Switzerland, UK, and the USA.
