Glover Country Artist in Residence 2020
Monday, 10 February 2020 | 12:25pm
Tasmanian artist Amber Koroluk-Stephenson is the inaugural recipient of the Glover Country Residency offered though Arts Tasmania. The residency allows artists to live in the homestead and walk in the footsteps of colonial artist, John Glover, and to appreciate the landscape he lived in and loved.
Amber says the Residency ‘presents an exciting opportunity for me to respond to the history and site of John Glover’s former estate, where I will draw on his legacy through contemporary interpretations of landscape’.
Amber, whose practice draws on the intersections between natural and man-made environments is particularly interested in Glover’s painting ‘A view of the artist’s house and garden in Mill’s Plains, Van Diemen’s Land. She will commence her month long residency in May 2020.
