Rosanne Robertson (they/them, born Sunderland 1984) is a contemporary artist based in Cornwall. Their practice spans sculpture, performance and drawing to explore the boundaries of the body and its environment. Robertson’s body of work 'Stone (Butch)' was exhibited within the work of Barbara Hepworth at The Hepworth Wakefield and at Yorkshire Sculpture Park for Yorkshire Sculpture International (2019). Their public sculpture 'We Built Ships' (2021) will create a legacy to the 700 women who worked in Sunderland’s shipyards. During 2020 Robertson was a studio holder at Porthmeor Studios (St Ives) continuing works that explore the terrain of the Queer body. ‘Between Two Bodies’, ‘Packing’ and ‘The Island’ were purchased by The Contemporary Art Society for The Hepworth Wakefield Collection.
