‘Days Like This’ is a body of work characterised by flurries of radiant colour and gestural mark making. Amber Stokie uses innovative ways of painting to communicate the richness and complex nature of contemporary life and her experience of life as a triplet. To structure her works, Stokie uses a variety of techniques that include employing both hands and multiple brushes simultaneously to create paintings loaded with gestural marks that interact; collide, combine, pull apart and unite. Experimentation is an important part of Stokie practice as she moves between abstract expressionism and figuration, believing both are helpful in conceptualising her work. Currently located in Geelong VIC, Stokie holds a BA in Visual Art (drawing) from the University of Ballarat and recently completed a Master of Fine Art degree with Distinction at RMIT University, Melbourne.
