Amelia Dowling is a Melbourne based visual artist and curator. Trained in art history, curatorial studies and fashion design, Dowling uses textiles, language and embroidery to explore concepts around vulnerability, memory, personal narrative, and the unconscious. The artist is interested in the intimate and public power that art holds to connect, protest, subvert, play, and heal. Dowling exhibits in solo and group exhibitions, undertakes commissions and her work is held in private and commercial collections in Australia, New Zealand, and the UK.
