Amy King has an inherent curiosity to unpack the world that surrounds us. From Haute couture to the hood, gallery to garage, natural vs fake, the clash of high and low is a space Amy actively explores in her work. Through the casting of universal items and the twisting of recognisable forms, Amy transforms tchotchke to treasure and allows the audience to speculate on the symbolic meanings of objects.
Amy has a post graduate degree in Applied arts from Whiteria and a Undergraduate Bachelors Degree in Design and Visual arts from Unitec. Amy has exhibited both nationally and internationally.
