Ones to Watch: Amber Hearn

THE ART EDIT TEAM PRESENTS THE ARTISTS ON ITS RADAR RIGHT NOW.

Engaging the fields of painting, installation, performance and virtual reality, artist Amber Hearn uses her work to reconnect with her rural upbringing. Graduating from The National Art School in Sydney with a BFA in 2014 and currently a finalist in The Glover Art Prize 2020, Amber’s work explores human experience and connection with landscape. Her paintings use a combination of free and constrained forms to present worlds in which human presence is void yet eerily resonant. Amber explores the idea of the trace element in which the movement and vibration of a body are hinted at but not exposed. Her works create environments which embody both the pain and beauty of being human and how we experience landscape through memory.
