Amanda Dunsmore is a visual artist who’s art practice employs art processes that explores representations of societal transformation through portraiture. She works with video, sound, photography and installation. Through sculpture and media she has developed her practice over the past twenty-five years. Her contextual portraits evolve through long periods of research and the work is often presented as a series of extensive socio-political / historical art projects. Central to Amanda’s art practice is an exploration of potential future memory in society, the accumulative legacy of portraiture in archiving history and the long-term value of socio-political art making.
