Lani Eyles's paintings explore the relation between man and the natural world, inviting the viewer into imaginary landscapes full of wonder, delight and possibilities.
Influenced by her experience of living in Brazil, where she witnessed the devastating environmental damage caused by grassland conversion into farms. Lani's work promotes the notion of co-existence between man and nature. A notion reinforced by her subtle and harmonious use of colour and a light naive touch.
Lani has work in private collections in New Zealand and overseas and has been selected as finalist in numerous awards including the Molly Morpeth, The Miles and the New Zealand Paint and Printmakers Award
