Amy O’Connor

Amy O’Connor is a multimedia artist who focuses her work around themes such as the millennial, internet culture, selfies and the colour pink. Often referencing her own interests and social media, she explores the different relationships between current popular culture and fine art. By engaging subjects such as early 2000s girl culture, social media and spatial awareness, O’Connor’s work can often make the viewer feel uncomfortable and claustrophobic. Although there may not always be material similarities between her works, they have all stemmed from the same research and, as a unit, make sense. Artists that O’Connor is interested in are Petra Collins, Arvida Bystrom and Racheal Maclean. She is also inspired by what it was like to grow up surrounded by the Internet and things that happen online.
