Born in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1955, Jill Berelowitz studied sculpture, first under Karen Jarozynska and then at the Johannesburg School of Art. Jill moved from her native South Africa to London 25 years ago and is one of the capital’s most innovative sculptors, known for her bronze, steel and optical resin works.
Whether pursuing her long-standing passion for the intimacy and movement of the body, or flexibly working to a brief, Jill’s detailed understanding of anatomy and organic form gifts her work with sensual, contemporary appeal.
Jill has exhibited at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, at Christie’s, and on Cork Street. Her high-profile commissions include the life-size Pair Oar rowers at Henley-on-Thames, an exhibition for Elizabeth Arden, a rugby trophy for the Investec Challenge her latest commissioned sculpture, ‘Core Femme’ in Cavendish Square for the Westminster City of Sculpture Festival, in May 2011.
