Denise Batchelor works primarily in digital media, both still and moving image. Recently relocated to the Hokianga, Batchelor had adopted somewhat of a nomadic lifestyle these last few years, following her subjects.
Responding to site-specific environments and through personal encounters with nature and the immediate world around her, Batchelor explores the subject of connection.
The artist has exhibited widely in New Zealand, in both public and dealer galleries, art centres and festivals, and has been the recipient of artist residencies and art awards. Her work is held in public and private collections including the Wallace Arts Trust. Batchelor graduated MFA (Hons) from Whitecliffe College of Arts and Design in 2010.
