Lang Ea

Lang Ea – Biography

Lang Ea is a multi-media artist whose artworks have been exhibited and collected locally and internationally.

She questions and explores the personal yet universal challenges of war and its traumas. Her artworks are a compilation of emotionally complex narratives, fuelled by personal experience as they interweave the lingering resonances of historical trauma. 

The burden of her subconscious memory and our current unstable contemporary age combines to enhance her vision, making the works subtle, fresh and original while offering perceptive disclosure and inviting contemplation.

Lang’s family fled Cambodia after the fall of the Khmer Rouge regime and after spending three years in various Thailand refugee camps, the family immigrated to New Zealand in 1982.
