Profile

Gill Rosselli is an award-winning Zimbabwean artist whose work is inspired from her upbringing in a country with so much physical beauty yet heartbreaking injustice. After studying Fine Art at the University of Cape Town, Gill returned to her homeland to work as an artist. Her exhibits and installations reflected her preoccupation with the struggles of the country, as well as her fascination with its natural beauty.
Fostering a close relationship with the earth, Gill’s pieces are inspired by nature and reflect an empathy with and an appreciation of all things it provides. Land in Zimbabwe represents the economic and political collapse of the nation; it has been a source of wealth, loss, pain and injustice for its people. These are themes Gill has explored in her works.
