Lyndell Brown and Charles Green have worked in collaboration as one artist since 1989. They are based in regional Victoria. Their works are included in most of Australia’s public art collections and many private and corporate collections.
In 2007, they were Australia’s Official War Artists, deployed to Afghanistan and Iraq, and between 2011 and 2014 worked on a follow-up collaboration with artist Jon Cattapan (assisted by an Australian Research Council Discovery Grant) about the aftermath of Australia’s wars since Vietnam, which the three artists exhibited in Melbourne across two galleries in late 2014, accompanied by a book (Framing Conflict: Contemporary War and Aftermath, Macmillan, 2014).
Dr Lyndell Brown is an Honorary Research Fellow in the School of Culture and Communication at the University of Melbourne.
