Born Kawerau, NZ.
Gill Gatfield creates powerful, challenging yet beautiful and intuitive sculptures. Fusing rare natural materials with minimalist form, she courts complexity and works across miniature and monumental scale.
Her ground-breaking artworks win national and international acclaim, and are held in collections worldwide. Each object and installation holds a deep sensory pull - moving people to reach out to touch silky planes, internal curves or translucent edges, and to imagine utopian futures.
Political and philosophical ideas, intricately woven by the artist through her striated stone, shattered glass or reflective surfaces move mountains, and mind-sets. These abstract conceptual works challenge the perceptions of the beholder, raising eyebrows, questions, and the bar for minimalist art in contemporary practice.
