Lindsay Nelson

Lindsay Nelson took an early interest in art after being encouraged by his elders, including his father who was a well-respected ceremonial man. Lindsay grew up in Alekarenge and now lives in Tennant Creek where he is now a full-time artist, working as a key member of the Tennant Creek Brio artist collective.

Artist statement

In Ceremonial Motif I-IV, Lindsay Nelson has inscribed a set of old acetate mining maps with symbols representing ceremonial and desert life. These maps were salvaged from one of the many abandoned mines near Tennant Creek.
