About Denise



Based in Auckland until 2014, Batchelor has adopted a nomadic lifestyle these days, following her subjects wherever they may take her. Working in digital media, both still and moving image, Batchelor responds to site-specific environments, often revealing moments overlooked and time as suspended.

Batchelor has exhibited widely in public and dealer galleries, art centers and festivals, won the Waikato River Art Awards 2014 and was a recipient of the Auckland Council Regional Parks Residency in 2013. A finalist in numerous national awards include The Parkin Prize, Wallace Art Awards, New Zealand Contemporary Art Award and Estuary Art Award. Her work is held in public and private collections including The Wallace Arts Trust and Auckland Council.
