About the Artist

Susan Lincoln

Susan Lincoln graduated from Griffith University QLD College of Art in 1996 with a Bachelor of Visual Arts (Interior Design) and a Master of Visual Arts Research Degree in 2010. Her research exegesis examined “Maintaining socio-cultural narrative through Form and Light.”

In 2011 Susan was awarded an established artist grant from the Australia Council for the development of a clip together portable meditation space, which when entered, immerses the participant within spectral light. In 2014, YOU ARE HERE (aka The Rainbow Room) was selected as a Finalist in the acclaimed McClelland Sculpture & Survey Award in Langwarrin, Victoria.

In 2018, Susan received an Arts Ignite Grant, made possible through Arts Queensland and its Queensland Arts Showcase Program. The grant supports the development of new works for the exhibition YOU ARE HERE 2. A national regional touring program is currently under development to tour the show with Museums & Galleries Queensland. Susan is also the 2018 Artist Touring Mentorship Program (VACS Funding) with Museums and Galleries QLD.

Her publicly commissioned major artworks include Min Min Lights at the Brisbane International Airport Terminal and FOREST in the Capalaba Town Centre. Gadens Corporate Art Collection, actor Nicole Kidman and the QLD Theatre Company, among others, have purchased Lincoln’s beautiful and ethereal sculptures. Susan has exhibited both nationally and internationally, and has completed numerous private commissions throughout Australia.
