Colourful, narrative, figurative

Lauryne Hart is an Auckland based painter who produces strikingly colourful figurative works, which explore sociological perspectives.

Colour is Hart's signature- her works are bright and joyful. The surface of Hart's paintings are ‘texture-less’ and ‘pattern-less’, relying on the boldness of taking her colours straight from the tube. The colour effects used in her work are further enhanced by the use of contrasting black line work, which defines and enhances the colour regions. The use of vibrant palettes is important to the artist’s core theme of “Colour in Life”; colour becomes symbolic of the commonalities, differences and fascinating connections between people.

Hart’s canvases are carefully populated with figures that draw the viewer in with their unique personalities and narratives. While each figure offers a snapshot into a way of being, the way in which the individual narratives are threaded together is perhaps most compelling. The figures are often situated in non-descript environments, giving them a timeless quality.
