NZ artist Gill Gatfield creates abstract sculptures combining sensory materials with ideas about humanity, nature and place. Using rare stones and timbers, crystal-clear glass and native grass, her minimalist forms provoke thought and tempt touch. For the Venice Architecture Biennale 2018, she created Zealandia, a symbol of human DNA carved from one block of precious NZ stone. The Kiss, a black granite love-mark exhibited at Sculpture by the Sea Denmark and SCAPE Public Art, won a 2017 CODAaward. The 16T glass monument Glass Ceiling (NZ Aotearoa) will be presented at Silo Park Auckland 1 Feb-1 March 2019. Gill has been awarded a VSC Sculpture Fellowship at the Vermont Studio Centre in 2019.
