Jack Trolove is a visual artist from Aotearoa / New Zealand.
He holds an MFA with distinction from Massey University, and has work held in private and public collections across New Zealand, Australia and Europe.
He is represented by Whitespace Gallery in Auckland.
Jack’s work explores relationships between embodiment and liminal spaces; the poetics of gender transition, intergenerational memory, and other states of in-between-ness.
He approaches figurative work as a kind of re-membering.
