Artist: Amber Imrie was raised off-the-grid in the Ozark Mountains of Northwest Arkansas. She was homeschooled until age twelve. She attended school for three years before testing out of high school and moving out on her own.
Amber got her BA in Studio Art from UC Berkeley and was awarded Excellence in Sculpture in 2013. She was awarded the Anita Squires Fowler Award in Photography upon graduation from Stanford University with a Masters in Fine Art in 2018. Imrie received the Cadogan award in 2017 and she was a finalist for both the SOMA residency and the Headlands Graduate Fellowship Award in 2018.
Amber has attended residencies at NDSM Treehouse, Elsewhere Studios, San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles, and ChaNorth. Currently, she is carrying out a self-imposed, residency-in-quarantine in the countryside outside Stockholm, Sweden.
Amber Imrie’s work explores the culture and politics around rural living from a queer perspective.
Artist Statement: PinkPitsRedNecks explores the rarely spoken about rural queer population. It seeks to queerify the commonly held identity of rural Americans.
