Artist Profiles » Lauryne Hart

Lauryne HartMy works are examples of the near infinite palate of human experience. I hope to show the rich vibrancy of shared culture that has been such an important part of my life.

My South African heritage is very important to my work. South Africa, like New Zealand, contains many interacting cultures. In my work I aim to realise the commonalities in the cultures I see around me. A melting pot of cultures exists in New Zealand the country I now call home. This gives me continued inspiration to show the oneness we experience despite our differences. My paintings show the people of all times and places. In coming to New Zealand, I brought my culture with, adding something to society and my new homeland.

I work in acrylics on canvas because the craft of my work is as important to me as the artistry. I enjoy the layering process that my materials necessitate, as it allows me to observe my labour coming to fruition. The style and subjects of my work reflect the inherent joy and beauty that can be found through practising art. I portray the diversity, beauty, character, vitality and emotions of people in narrative portraits. I draw the viewer in with form, colour and expressions.
