Visual Art

Installation work ‘Intrude’ cleverly captures the contradiction of rabbits in Australia. They are concurrently destructive and symbolic of innocence. ‘Intrude’ deliberately evokes a fairy-tale image and strong visual humour to lure and captivate you into the artwork, only to reveal a more serious environmental message.

Amanda Parer is an Australian artist who began her art career as a painter and sculptor in Sydney but now resides in Tasmania. Parer focuses her practice on creating large-scale illuminated art installations and exhibiting around the world.

The themes in Parer’s work have been inspired by a trip to the Galapagos Islands accompanying her Natural History film-makers Aunt and Uncle; Liz Parer-Cook and David Parer in the mid-1990s. It was there that she experienced animals unaccustomed to humans as any kind of threat. Having this up-close experience with the unique marine and terrestrial fauna had a large impact on Parer and set the tone for her artwork themes from then on.

Amanda Parer first moved to art installations in 2014 and has so far exhibited in almost 300 cities around the globe, enjoyed by millions and where they continue to capture public and media attention wherever they go.
