Amanda Parer

Exploring the natural world, its fragility and our role within it

About

Amanda Parer, born in Sydney 1971, works and lives in Tasmania. Her work explores the natural world, its fragility and our role within it. Featuring an assortment of feral or endangered creatures both great and small, her environmental message is clear across mediums, from her finely crafted paintings to her bold ephemeral sculptures.

Amanda’s work is gaining recognition from both public and private collectors. She was selected three times for the Blake Prize (2009, 2010 and 2011), as well as a 2008, 2012 and 2013 Glover Prize Finalist. She has been invited to show work at the Asia Contemporary Art Show in Hong Kong in 2014; being launched in conjunction with Art Basel Hong Kong.

Amanda’s major public art installation Intrude was the prominent work in the 2014 Vivid Festival in Sydney. In 2015 she has been invited to display Intrude or develop new ideas for Saudi Arabia, the Light Festival in Ghent in Belgium and the Winter Festival – South Bank in London, England.
