Teresa HR Lane, Apples, 2019. Mixed media collage, 65cm x 65cm. Courtesy of the artist and Sanderson Contemporary, Auckland.
Auckland based artist Teresa HR Lane is interested in reversing the male gaze, with a sense of humour and playfulness. Inspired by her godly Greek ancestry, interest in anatomy and gender issues as represented by the media, she confounds our expectations by dismembering and reassembling bodies to offer us an alternative vision. At times confronting, her collages document the ordinary and celebrates the extraordinary, whilst highlighting the often-perverse ways we interact with others.
Exhibition opens: 5:30–7:30pm Tuesday 30 July 2019
