Amber Boardman represented by Chalk Horse

Artist Amber Boardman joins the Sydney Gallery stable.

Words: Annie Tonkin

USA-born, Sydney-based artist Amber Boardman is now represented by Chalk Horse, Sydney.

Boardman’s work examines how the internet shapes us by looking at ever-changing social norms and crowd behaviour. By drawing on a range of painterly influences such as Pierre Bonnard, she exploits the scope of properties intrinsic to oil paint in order to animate her images — she lets it drip freely, blots and blends colour, and layer by layer builds up surfaces.

Boardman holds a PhD from the University of New South Wales in Sydney, an MFA in Fine Art from the School of Visual Arts in New York and a BFA in Studio Art from Georgia State University, Atlanta. Her works are held in numerous private and public collections including the High Museum of Art, The Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia, the University of Kentucky Art Museum, the City of Sydney, and Artbank Australia.

Boardman’s solo exhibition Crowd Scenes shows at Chalk Horse from 4 to 27 July 2019.
