Amber Hearn is a multidisciplinary Sydney based artist, originally from regional NSW. Her practice engages the fields of Painting, Sculpture, Installation, Photography and Video, including VR.
Her work explores discontent with the future, the nature of ‘being’, human experience/connection/lack of connection and being a woman, embodied in her most recent VR film, Bang Bang Bang (2018).
Amber received a Bachelor of Fine Art (Honours) from The National Art School (NAS) Sydney in 2014. She is the sole founder and curator of the ‘Crossing Borders’ refugee fundraising annual project which runs in partnership with NAS, raising money for Refugee Advice and Casework Service (RACS) to continue providing free legal services to people seeking asylum in Australia.
Amber was recently involved as a director at STACKS Projects, an Artist Run Initiative gallery in Kings Cross Sydney where she curated exhibitions and programs throughout 2016-17.
