Nellie Rogerson is a visual artist working primarily within the sculptural discourse. Through sculpture, craft and installation, her practice explores the multitudes of material potential in artistic forms, with a heavy focus on the interrogation of function and energy.

After finishing at Monash, Nellie was selected for Fresh! at Craft Victoria, the NEWER12 exhibition at Trocadero Art Space and published in DQ Magazine. Nellie has shown in Melbourne and interstate in curated group and solo shows at spaces including Seventh Gallery, Platform Contemporary Art Space, Guilford Lane Gallery, LoopHole, Moana Project Space and as a part of L'Oréal Melbourne Fashion Week's Penthouse Mouse.
In 2014, Nellie was selected as an Artist in Residence at 3331 Arts Chiyoda, Tokyo and since shown at Space Space in Japan and undertaken a second residency in 2015 at Studio Kura in Fukuoka. Her work ‘ Bomb’ was featured as the cover of Circuit: Western Australian Contemporary Art. Nellie is a recipient of the ArtStart grant from Australia Council for the Arts.
