David Rosetzky (1970– ) is a Melbourne-based artist who studied painting at Victoria College in Prahran and completed a PhD in Fine Art at Monash University in Caulfield. Rosetzky works across medias which encompasses photography, video and installation to explore themes of identity, subjectivity and the psychology of interpersonal relationships.

In his practice Rosetzky combines the refinement of technical methods that often draw upon the visual language of fashion, advertising and cinema, with an invitation to chance and serendipity to enter into his image making processes.

Rosetzky has been working in portraiture since the early 1990s to explore ideas relating to the ‘self and identity’ and has a sustained interest in experimental photographic processes. Rosetzky commented that “the technique of double-exposure photography is particularly interesting to me – working with portraiture and ideas relating to the self and identity – as it helps me to create images that seem ambiguous, fragmented and in a state of transition, rather than fixed or essential.” (Rosetzky – Composite Images, Sutton Gallery, 2018)

Rosetzky’s work has been exhibited widely both nationally and internationally and is held in numerous collections. His major commissions include Portrait of Cate Blanchett (2008), for the National Portrait Gallery, Canberra, a collaboration with choreographer Lucy Guerin and composer J David Franzke.
