Amanda Stuart is a Canberra based visual artist, writer, curator and art educator. Her sculptural works produce objects that sit in the environment to invite psychic re-imaginings of old, unhealed wounds between humans and unwanted animals. Embedded in a materiality of the Australian regional landscape and its fauna, her works refer to the social, cultural, ethical and political difficulties surrounding contested estranged human animal relations within contested landscapes. Stuart’s practice embraces drawing, installation, object making and in-situ photographic documentation.

Stuart has a PhD in Visual Arts (Sculpture) and a Bachelor of Science (Land Management) – the latter of which quietly informs her art practice and concerns regarding relations with country. She currently lectures in the Environment Studio and Foundation workshops at ANU School of Art & Design, and co-coordinates the Balawan Elective with co-founders Amelia Zaraftis and Heike Qualitz.
