Selected Work

Lorene Taurerewa

4 Aug 2012 - 6 Dec 2014

A palpable sense of unease permeates the works of New York-based artist Lorene Taurerewa. Her moody charcoal and pencil drawings suggest the unnerving figures that haunt our dreams, lurking just beneath the surface of our consciousness.


Taurerewa’s drawings have their parallels in the dark fairy tales that served to illustrate fears of the unknown and the unspeakable. The artist gives form to the anxieties that lurk in the dark corners of the psyche, confronting viewers with dreamscapes that seem at once strange and eerily familiar.
