Amanda Shone is a Hobart based artist whose solo and collaborative practice is multi-disciplinary but based within sculptural installation. Interested in the idea that reality is contingent on the perceiver, Shone’s work explores the difference between actual experience and pre-conceived ideas. Recent exhibitions include Chance, at Sawtooth ARI in Launceston 2012, Atmospheric Relations, Inflight ARI 2011, Dis-covery, curated by Colin Langridge for Ten Days On The Island Festival 2011, The Long Table Experiment, collaboration at Sangkring Art Space Yogyakarta 2011.
Shone holds a Bachelor of Fine Art with Honours from the University of Tasmania, and an Associate Diploma in Visual Arts from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology and was a board member of Six_a ARI. In 2013 Shone was granted an Arts Tasmania Artsbridge Grant and will undertake a residency at the Cité Internationale des Arts In Paris, France, 2011 received the CAST studio award, and in 2010 Shone was the recipient of an Australia Council New Work Grant, and received the Arts Tasmania Dombrovskis Award.
