Amber Stokie

Amber Stokie is a Geelong based artist known for her figurative paintings on paper and canvas. Situations where bodies connect and interact such as dance and relationships allow her to explore themes that interest her about human interaction such as negotiation, togetherness, balance and harmony. Heightened feelings of interdependence and separation are experiences that Stokie can engage with (as a triplet) and considers in her work.

“My background includes performance, video and text which have proven to be a perfect fit for what I want to communicate about relationships especially throughout my recent MFA journey, however what I find intoxicating about paint is the way in which it allows me to work in the studio – ferociously and always in a state of change. Paint simply excites me, I like my medium of choice to not only suit the content which is important, but also be a good fit for the way I naturally like to work.”

Amber Stokie holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Federation University Ballarat and a Master of Fine Arts with Distinction from RMIT University, Melbourne. She has been exhibiting regularly in group and solo exhibitions since 2009. From 2006 to 2009 she established and curated regular exhibitions at Artasis Gallery (ARI) in Richmond. Throughout this period she also completed a number of private and corporate commissions and participated in live painting performances at venues that included the National Gallery of Victoria and Chapter House in Melbourne, Vic. She has been a finalist in the Williamstown, Stanthorpe and Blacktown prizes and has won “people’s choice” at AGENDO emerging art award. In 2016 she was recipient of the ADFAS Young Artist Award for her RMIT MFA work.
