Amanda Airs is an installation artist living and working in Melbourne, Australia. In 2010 she completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts, Painting (with Distinction) at RMIT University.
In 2009 Amanda became the recipient of the Melbourne International Airport, Take Off Art Award. The winning work was displayed at the Melbourne International Airport for a period of two months. A smaller work was acquired by the Melbourne Airport and First Tax and Duty Free.
In her work Amanda uses colour, line and angles to create large disorientating abstract installations. By exaggerating these elements (using repetition and hi-key tones) Amanda is able to create strong optical effects in particular perception of motion and spatial ambiguity. When applied to a large area she hopes to use the disorienting nature of the work to increase spatial awareness and to convey a heightened experience of being in the landscape.
