Lindsay was born in Stanthorpe in 1964 and graduated at the University of Southern Queensland in 1984 with a Diploma of Visual Arts, Majoring in Ceramics.
Each of Lindsay’s creations is unique. While he is careful to ensure that his creatures are anatomically correct, Lindsay recognises that ‘there is a big difference between creating something that is lifelike and bringing it to life’. Often he says the secret is in capturing the right posture, and the relationships between the creatures as they co-exist in their special environment. Working in three dimensions helps him to achieve this.
When creating a new piece Lindsay will start with
the clay making the background, then gradually build up the scene with
branches, vines, leaves, etc. The creatures are then nestled carefully
into place, taking advantage of hollows and textures that emerge as
the clay is worked. The pieces are coloured with underglazes, and then
kiln-fired to 11000C. This gives his sculptures a permanent vibrant
finish that brings the piece to life.
His work has been exhibited all over Australia since 1996 and is continuously exhibited in Maleny, Darwin, Yungabburra and Osaka (Japan).
