Wilson employs a smorgasbord of different paint applications to celebrate the awkward, the dainty and the dumpy.
Amber Wilson's come one come all approach to her
practice reveals her response to abstract modernist painting,
embroidery, lace, antique maps and postcards, fairy-tale
illustrations, picturesque landscape painting, woven textile
patterns, Korean restaurant menus and ikebana.
This list is by no means extensive, yet it indicates how happily
and without irony she mixes cultural highs and lows. This inclusive
and explorative approach extends to her painting processes and
Amber Wilson is a painter living in Auckland currently
undertaking a Masters by Project.
