Lincoln Austin engages with the formality of mathematics, the poetic of metaphor and the potential of material to create works ranging in scale and process; from mammoth public art projects through to delicate, intricate constructions. He has held solo exhibitions in Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney, including at the Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane (2008) and Ipswich Art Gallery (2009) and his work has been featured in group exhibitions including ‘Open, Closed’ Queensland University of Technology Art Museum (2012) and ‘Light Play’ University of Queensland (UQ) Art Museum (2015).
Austin’s work is held in a number of public collections including the Queensland Art Gallery, the Gallery of Modern Art, the UQ Art Museum, and the Australian Government’s Artbank. In addition, Austin has completed significant public art commissions for the Queensland Museum, Brisbane City Council and the Ipswich Magistrates Court. In 2015, Austin undertook an Australia Council for the Arts residency at the British School, Rome. Lincoln Austin is represented by Andrew Baker Art Dealer Brisbane and Nicholas Thompson Gallery, Melbourne.
