Australian artist Amanda Parer’s edgy and ephemeral artworks explore the natural world, its fragility and our role within it. With startlingly beautiful creatures enlarged and frozen within their chosen habitats. When viewing one of these iconic, mostly feral animals inhabiting a beautifully haunting landscape, the environmental message is enhanced by the artist’s finely crafted technique in any of her chosen mediums such as public installation, painting or sculpture. Parer is an artist originally from Sydney but now resides in Tasmania where her work has been acquired by both public and private collections. Her work has been displayed in major international public art museums such as the North Carolina Museum of Art and the Memphis Museum of Art. Amanda has also attracted major art commissions such as from Starfield Hanam, Seoul Korea and Brookfield International where her works embarked on a major US tour of their keystone properties in New York, Houston, Denver, and Los Angeles during 2016.
Amanda’s major public art installation Intrude was a prominent work in the 2014 Vivid Festival in Sydney and since that time the artwork and its different manifestations, Intrude sm, XL, XXL, and Nibbles have so far been exhibited in over 40 cities on four continents around the world and continues to capture major media attention where ever it goes.
Amanda’s newest art installation, Fantastic Planet , initially commissioned by four festivals, the MMVAF in Australia, Signal in the Czech Republic. Glow in the Netherlands and en Lumieres in Canada in 2016, is already capturing international attention for 2017.
Amanda works with a team of international engineers, lighting, computer and production technicians from her Northern Tasmanian studios to develop her artworks.
