Amber Koroluk Stephenson
Amber Koroluk-Stephenson is a visual artist whose practice draws on the intersections between natural and built environments to explore complexities surrounding Australian identity and landscape, structures of facade, and paradoxes of taming or staging the landscape. Working across painting, sculpture and collage, her work plays on the contrasts between natural and artificial, interior and exterior, the familiar and strange to fulfil the human desire to connect with nature and make visible what is out of sight.
Since graduating from the Tasmanian School of Art with a BFA (Honours) in 2010, Amber has held
numerous solo and group exhibitions. Recent solo exhibitions include Breaking Horizons, Bett Gallery
(2020), Middleground, Bett Gallery (2018), Shadows on the Wall, Anna Pappas Gallery (2017), and
Homeland, Devonport Regional Gallery (2017).
Amber has also been selected for a number of Australian prizes including The Churchie National
Emerging Artist Prize, Tidal National Art Award, Redlands Art Award, Albany Art Prize, Portia Geach
Memorial Award, Ravenswood Art Prize and Glover Prize.

"I am inspired by light. Even in the most innocuous of scenes, if the light is dramatic and the mood is misty or sharp or rainy, then I'm in! I have a natural aversion to bright colours. I believe a painting should move you emotionally and if you have to explain it, then it isn't doing its job".
