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.
