Amanda Bromfield

Amanda Bromfield - Sculptor and Ceramic Artist

Amanda Bromfield is an emerging artist and consciousness raiser. She makes work about social, political and environmental issues. Just as the second wave feminists did, Amanda takes her message to the streets.

Over the past eighteen months Amanda has dressed as a koala and marched silently along city streets, country roads and seaside beaches carrying written messages about extinction and bushfire. Each march is dedicated to creating public awareness about climate change, loss of biodiversity and, specifically, the immediacy of saving the koala. Amanda's short movie Army of One documents her daily marches in the Sydney CBD and across rural NSW to create awareness about extinction and bushfire.

Amanda is a ceramicist, and her practice is interdisciplinary. She uses clay and incorporates video and performance to create many of her installation pieces. Amanda is a hand-builder who makes both pots and figurative work. Her studio is in Lennox Head in the Northern Rivers Region of NSW.
 
Amanda also has a great interest in women’s stories. In February she will undertake a Bathurst Regional Art Gallery Residency (BRAG) at Hill End. During her month long stay in the old gold mining town she will research and make a body of work about the experiences of the women who have resided at Hill End since the first gold strike.
 
In July, Amanda’s solo exhibition, The Nun in the Night Gown will open at the Wagga Art Gallery. This show tells the unknown story of a young nun who flees the Mt Erin Convent and then proceeds to take the Catholic Bishop of the Wagga Diocese to court.
