Amber Tutwiler is an artist originally from South Florida. Her work is a meditation on interface; specifically, it is concerned with the interface between our physical, corporeal world and the heterotopic spaces arising from the world. Elaborating on the relationships between between the body, interface, and locality, her work is rooted in phenomenological encounters. Focusing on an interdisciplinary practice, she works across oil painting, sculpture and installation, audio, video, and performance. In 2017, Tutwiler established H/ours Collective (active 2017-2019), which curated five exhibitions and two performances, including Liminal Encounters (2017), Flat (2018), and Here: Local / Non-local (2019) at various institutions. In 2018, she also began a collaborative partnership with a non-profit dance company, Ballet Florida of West Palm Beach, where they co-produced two performances, Welcome (2018) and Pulse (2019). Her work has been featured in the Museum of Contemporary Art in North Miami, Florida, MANA Contemporary in Miami, Florida, Kravis Center in West Palm Beach, Florida, and at the Women Cinemaker’s 2018 Biennale in Berlin, Germany. Recent awards include the South Cultural Consortium Fellowship in 2019, Women in Visual Arts Fellowship in 2017, and the Thesis and Dissertation Award from Florida Atlantic University in 2017. In the summer of 2020, she was a resident at IS Projects in Fort Lauderdale, Florida where she experimented with CMYK lithograph prints. This residency was followed by a solo exhibition, Repeater, which was on view at IS Projects from September 26 to November 12, 2020. The exhibition featured a series of paintings that, when viewed from left to right, read collectively as a poem. Most recently, she was one of twenty-six artists accepted into the Statewide Annual Exhibition in Utah (2020) which resulted in the collection of her work into the Alice Merrill Horne Collection in Utah. She attended Alexander W. Dreyfoos School of the Arts for Dance and Visual Arts, Massachusetts College of Art and Design for Painting, Florida Atlantic University for Psycology (BA in Psychology) and received her MFA in Visual Art from Florida Atlantic University (2017). She is an Assistant Professor at Utah Valley University in Orem, Utah teaching across foundations, painting, and drawing.
