    Episode 86 - Amber Wallis, painter of lyrical abstraction

    Episode 86 - Amber Wallis, painter of lyrical abstraction

    We had a wonderful chat with artist Amber Wallis during the lockdown, via zoom. Amber is a thought-provoking artist, who thinks deeply about her paintings and subject matter. She is represented by Nicholas Thompson Gallery and is having a solo show for Sydney Contemporary in November 2022. She is also in upcoming group shows in Los Angeles at SADE gallery and Gruin Gallery. 

    'The work of Wallis is simply engulfing. The observer is at once immersed into this explosion of colour, paint, experimentation and self–expression. There seem to be no limitations or restrictions when it comes to Amber Wallis. She is perpetually defining and redefining new boundaries of paint and canvas work. With each colour merging into the next and each paint stroke taking the painting in a completely new direction – Wallis truly is an exciting artist. ' by Heidi Yardley

    Thanks so much for talking to us.

    Thanks, Nicola for talking to us about your amazing art practice. We saw her show at Arthouse Gallery in Sydney and were blown away by the technicality of her beautiful artworks.  We talked to Nicola over zoom at the beginning of Australia's lockdown, a few months ago. We discussed paper cutting, her process, how she is inspired by the environment and securing its future, making joyful positive works, art residencies, and much more.

Brilliant Podcast

The questions asked are intuitive and thoughtful, the responses are deeply personal and informative - which makes this podcast unique. I smile and take notes through the episodes and frequently feel inspired and a little bit closer to understanding very special and intelligent people.
Thanks so much Julie and Fiona.
My absolute favourite podcast. ❤️

Favourite Podcast as an Artist

Art W**k is everything I was looking for in a podcast, and it impacts my weeks with so much positivity.
I am a full time artist myself, self taught, and making it up as I go...so to find a resource like this has been incredibly impactful to my practice.

The dynamic between Julie & Fiona is the magic glue that keeps me wanting to listen more and more.... I find myself alone in my studio, yet laughing out loud every episode.

I can’t get enough. Highly recommend.
