Native Tongue 2012 (Telecom, Auckland NZ) PlayPause


New Zealand artist Gill Gatfield creates minimalist art imbued with rich content, expressing ideas about beauty, philosophy and human nature.

Across three connected bodies of work (Monochromes, Frames and Texts), her abstract-conceptual objects appeal to the senses and provoke political and cultural content. The seamless compositions of media, form, scale, method, context and title are directly linked to the ideas rendered within each artwork.

Sensitive to landscape, environment, site and audience, Gatfield's public artworks intrigue, challenge and inspire.
