Nellie Rogerson is a Melbourne based Visual Artist.
Her practice focuses on the interrogation of function and utility, the containment of latent energies and, the use of ‘materiality’ to create this language within the work.
The structure’s eruption is latent.
The objects are kept to a minimum of necessity - exercising utility, to create the language of what is occurring in the work; the object, the material causing effect, and the container of that energy.
The inclination of materiality giving potential for exploration to become utilitarian forms, objects of tension and a container for latent energy is a summary of her interrogation. In addition, the language that materiality materialises through concepts and the way structures can talk about the social, or the intimate and the anthropomorphic generate Nellie’s practice.
