Lynden Stone

I am a multi-disciplinary artist and arts educator however, my practice is mainly based in painting. I am currently exploring the theme "The Artist's Collection" - real and imagined objects collected by me. Within that theme, I am playing with materiality, pretence and illusion where I paint still lifes of collectable objects made of plastic, wood, metal ,etc that are give the illusion of something else -such as unicorns made of wood, plastic or fake fur; pigs made of plastic and metal, and ceramic, etc. I am also the artist behind the hilarious New Age parody Sacred Gaia Healing™ where my alter ego Angelica Leight and her marketing manager Runcely Chaser (played by my partner Robert Quinlan) peddle bogus New Age services and products. I currently live in the outer north east of Melbourne on Mount Dandenong after having lived in Brisbane and Northern NSW. I have taught painting and drawing at the Queensland College of Art, Griffith University, Brisbane. I've also taught at QUT, South Bank TAFE Brisbane and TAFE NSW Murwillumbah. I currently teach art history online for TAFE Murwillumbah and painting and drawing through the Victoria Government's Learn Local scheme.
