Amber Koroluk-Stephenson is a visual artist whose practice draws on the intersections between natural and man-made environments to explore complexities surrounding Australian identity and landscape, structures of facade, and paradoxes of taming or staging the landscape. Her work plays on the parallels between the wild and tame, natural and artificial, interior and exterior, civilised and non-civilised, familiar and unknown to fulfil the human desire to connect with nature and make visible what is out of sight.

Since graduating from the Tasmanian School of Art with a BFA (Honours) in 2010, Koroluk-Stephenson has held numerous solo and group exhibitions nationally. She has has been selected for a number of Australian prizes including The Churchie National Emerging Artist Prize, Portia Geach Memorial Award, Ravenswood Art Prize, Tidal National Art Award, Redlands Art Award, Albany Art Prize and Glover Prize. She has received several grants and awards for her practice, including an Australia Council ArtStart Grant, a NAVA Australian Artists’ Grant and Arts Tasmania ArtsBridge Grants. Koroluk-Stephenson has also received numerous studio residencies including Contemporary Art Tasmania, University of Tasmania, Arts Tasmania, and Cite Internationale des Arts in Paris.
