Teresa HR  Lane

I Have No Words, 2020, mixed media collage , 750mm x 750mm


Auckland based artist Teresa HR Lane aspires to present visual equality by disrupting the male gaze with an irreverent humour. Inspired by abundant information, disconnected Greek ancestry, influential but contradictory myths, bodily representation, and the never ending story of (in)equality.  Lane confounds our expectations by dismembering and reassembling with an intricate mixed media collage practice, ‘painting with paper’, and ‘drawing with scissors’, offering the viewer an alternative vision, interwoven with an ethereal place, imagined but firmly entrenched in reality.  At time’s confronting, these collages document the ordinary and celebrate the extraordinary, accentuating the perversity of human interaction.

Lane received an MFA from Elam School of Fine Arts at the University of Auckland in 2017. Recent exhibitions include Oh My, God, Sanderson Gallery, Auckland;  I’ve Hidden Your Knickers Under Here (where the boys won’t see),Allpress Studio, Auckland;  Molly Morpeth Canaday Awards, Whakatāne Exhibition Centre;  Nevermind the Apocalypse, Paul Nache Gallery, Gisborne. Lane was the recipient of Akel Schulte Runner-up Award in the 2019 Molly Morpeth Canaday Painting and Drawing Award and is a finalist in the 2019 National Contemporary Art Award and the Wallace Art Awards in 2017. Lanes works are included in the Wallace Arts Trust Collection and various private collections.
