Amber Boardman is a Sydney based American artist. She has a MFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York and was shortlisted for the 2016 John Fries prize. Boardman is interested in three things: narrative, figuration and abstraction. Her portraits are snapshots of socially awkward moments, which are described by the titles. Internet memes are a source of inspiration for the ways that these titles can change the reading of these works. The titles are incredibly important. Amber notices things people don’t want to notice or things people overlook.
