Amanda Bell

Amanda Bell is an emerging Badimia and Yued artist living and working on Noongar Boodja in Busselton. She began making about 5 years ago as a result of being a stay-at-home carer for her elderly mother. This time in her life was quite isolating and art was an avenue for her to experience and explore the world around her as well as her culture and finding a voice through creativity. Her artistic practice has since developed and she has had some success with the intention of honouring her people, and communicating how she feels about many contemporary issues affecting Aboriginal people today. She has explored many different processes of artistic practice but has been especially drawn towards sculpture, installation art and more recently portrait painting.

Her work has been exhibited at the Bunbury Regional Art Gallery (BRAG), ArtGeo in Busselton and The Fremantle Arts Centre. Recently her large scale neon work From our mouth, lips, throat and belly was acquired by the Art Gallery of Western Australia, the Fremantle Arts Centre and Marcus Canning.

2021 has also seen Amanda mentored to curate her first exhibition at BRAG, for the exhibition Noongar Country and she is currently working on a Mental Health Arts Exhibition that will be held in October 2021.
