The Blackmail Interview

New interview up at The Blackmail

Amber Wallis’ loose and abstracted imagery is inspired by the landscape, relationships, experiences and emotions. Her strong lines and bold use of colour often incorporate references to the landscape and the figure. Her work has inspired numerous fellow artists in Melbourne through its rawness and ability to convey often very powerful messages. Her work can be seen shortly as part of the upcoming Shilo Project at the Ian Potter Museum of Art, Melbourne, and she has solo exhibitions lined up for Sydney and Melbourne in 2010. Amber is currently living in Paris as the winner of the tenth Brett Whiteley Travelling art scholarship, awarded by the Art Gallery of NSW.

Amber’s drawings have been featured in publications in Australia, Canada and the USA. She held her first solo exhibition at Utopian Slumps in 2009 and has participated in a number of group exhibitions in such galleries as Monster Children, TCB Art Inc, Utopian Slumps and Someday. She is a graduate of the Victorian Collage of Arts, Canberra School of Art and The Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design, Canada, and was a finalist in the Robert Jacks Drawing Prize in 2008. Melissa Loughnan caught up with Amber Wallis during the last stages of her scholarship…”
