Lindsay Broughton


Tasmanian artist Lindsay Broughton has 40 years of experience as an art teacher, lecturer and practicing artist. Broughton studied at the University of Tasmania and Leicester Polytechnic, England. He was head of the Drawing department at the Tasmanian School or Art, between 1986 and 2006. Broughton is known for his large-scale drawings and frottage. These imposing works explore the surface and history of place and objects and the traces that are embedded within his subjects. Broughton depicts often-contentious objects, sometimes artifacts. In his recent series for Despard, Broughton created large scale works referencing the famous Parisian cemetery Pierre Lachaise.

Broughton’s work is held within the collections of Tasmanian Museum & Art Gallery, Hobart; Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) Hobart; Queen Victoria Museum & Art Gallery, Launceston; University of Tasmania, Hobart; Henry Jones Art Hotel, Hobart; and numerous private collections. He has also been selected as a finailast in the City of Hobart Art Prize, 2002 and the Hutchins Art Prize, 2001 and 2007 and completed to public commissions for Arts Tasmania.
