Lynette Wallworth is an Australian artist whose practice spans video installation, photography and film.

Born in Sydney, Australia in 1961, she has worked extensively internationally, and her works have featured in numerous festivals and exhibitions.

Often working in series or meditations on one theme, her measured pace gently insists that patient observation might lead to layers of understanding between ourselves, others and the natural environment. Her work has been presented at the Auckland Triennial, Melbourne International Arts Festival and the Sydney festival as well as being exhibited internationally from Arnolfini, The Young Vic and Festival d'Aix en Provence in Europe to New York's Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in the United States.

Wallworth's responsive environments lead visitors to transcend their everyday selves and to connect with universal themes that include and describe their own existence. Always experimenting with the newest technologies, her ability to build a sense of community and compassion with these tools is startling. Beauty, revelation and wonder are celebrated in the artist’s works, fusing mind and body through the fundamental means of the haptic and the optic, light and touch.

The artist describes her intention as “bringing together technological advances and ancient understandings, new media and old practices, electronics and the electricity of human touch.”
