Zoe Amor creates work with an aesthetic that is iconic & contemporary, drawing on natural forms & cross cultural elements that inspire & enhance the spaces we inhabit.

At her studio in Castlemaine and at the Garage Art Foundry, she has embraced traditional & contemporary methods of bronze casting to create works that are beautiful & unique. Arranging & modelling in wax, clay & plaster, Zoe makes sculptural compositions that are suggestive of many life forms – seeds, flowers, trees, hills & valleys, terrestrial & oceanic life, & the architecture of dreams.

Her work is often inspired by the indigenous species of an area, such as the Black & White Cockatoos, Emus & Galas from Nature’s Riot, the Kamarooka, in the Bendigo Bank Collection, the Red Box Bush series & the many sculptural arrangements cast in bronze inspired by walks in the local Box Ironbark bush & hills of Castlemaine.

With a background in anthropology & sociology, Zoe has developed a deep interest in the way we respond to cultural & environmental change over time with different forms of artistic & cultural expression. She has participated in & facilitated many national & international arts & cultural events; was granted the Artists in Schools Residency by the Australia Council; has curated numerous exhibitions & was the Coordinator of the first Visual Arts Biennial for the Castlemaine State Festival. Zoe Amor’s work is exhibited widely in solo & group exhibitions and is held in public & private collections in Australia & overseas.
