Lynden Stone is a visual artist, arts researcher and educator.
In 2014 she was awarded a PhD from the Queensland College of Art, Griffith University Brisbane. In her research project, she investigated how artists can explore and represent the enigmas that quantum physics presents to our perceived reality; and more specifically, how can artists facilitate a viewer to doubt conventional reality? Her current ongoing project, Sacred Gaia Healing™, examines how capitalist positioning of over-valued services and products, targeting New Age gullibility, mocks the feminine, nature and ecology as well as ridiculing and devaluing possible underlying merit in in the metaphysical, the intuitive and consciousness. This may seem a quantum leap from her PhD research, however, some elements of the New Age claim that quantum mechanics underpins their ideas and she is exploring and critiquing this claimed connection in the Sacred Gaia Healing™project.
Lynden’s studio practice involves painting, drawing, collage, video, installation and including, recently through her latest project, performative aspects.
She has taught Painting, Drawing, basic Printmaking, Ideas and Images and Law for Artists and Designers at University and TAFE levels.
Lynden is represented in Brisbane by Bosz Gallery.
