Words About Art

Amber Lunt is a sculptor and writer based in South-East London. Responding to her own artistic explorations and the ever-evolving narratives within the art realm, her writing delves into the diverse ways that art interweaves socio-political commentary, ecology and philosophy with fictitious speculation and authentic expression. 

Amber's aptitude and fondness for writing has stemmed from her education, staying engaged with critical dialogues within contemporary culture, and from her professional experience in copywriting and writing blogs for an artistic social enterprise. Fascinated by arts' ability to instigate social change and disrupt conventional narratives, Amber perceives writing as a tool to prosper the potential of the art realm, whilst enabling Arts thought-provoking nature to bloom.
