Amber Hearn is a multidisciplinary Sydney based artist, originally from regional NSW.
Amber received a Bachelor of Fine Art (Honours) from The National Art School (NAS) Sydney in 2014. Her practice engages the fields of Painting, Installation and Performance Video, including Virtual Reality.
Her work explores discontent with the future, the nature of ‘being’, human experience/connection/lack of connection and imposed roles on being a woman, embodied in her most recent VR film, Bang Bang Bang (2019).
Her performances utilise her body as a vessel in a poetic manner to explore and subvert ideas which are both personal to her, yet universal in nature such as identity and constraints of the physical body.
Amber says of her paintings “My work explores discontent with the future, the nature of ‘being’, human experience and connection/lack of connection with the landscape. My paintings present worlds which are void of the human, yet hold a trace of where the body may have been, with a combination of free brush markings and constrained forms in an attempt to create an environment which embodies both the pain and beauty of being human and what we leave behind.”
