Amanda Lawler Her favoured print mediums are etching screen printing and she also makes artists’ books. Her prints have evolved to become large, unique state works and installations. Over the years, she has participated in many group exhibitions, and held her first solo exhibition in 2010.
Her work references discarded items of the domestic and the everyday to explore notions of value and worth. She is interested in the way that value and worth can be fleeting, superficial, a product of the times, and she seeks to reinstate that notion of worth, not as a monetary value, but based on past experience and memory.
Amanda’s early prints reflected on the landscape that she lived in, and as she gets to know a new home, she finds that her surroundings are again providing inspiration for her printmaking. Amanda currently works from a studio in her backyard, and sometimes, her dining table.
She began studying photography at North Adelaide School of Art, before changing her major to printmaking. She has a Bachelor of Visual Art and Applied Design from Adelaide Centre of the Arts and a Master of Visual Art from Monash University. She worked in the Printmaking Department at Adelaide College of the Arts for nine years, before moving to Woodend in 2010.
