Dylan Huata - INTRO-TO-VERT

Saturday 6 July 2024 - Thursday 18 July 2024

Lake House Arts is pleased to present...


Dylan Huata - INTRO-TO-VERT

6th July - 18th July


Becroft and Ogle Galleries

Opening Celebration:

4pm, Sunday 7th July


The “INTRO-2-VERT” exhibition focuses on Spirituality, Atua, and personal as well as communal experiences that connect us to our ancestors in everyday life.

The meaning behind the title “intro2vert” defines 3 key points.

The first meaning is the introduction of those above us who came before. 

As they watch over our actions and keep us accountable, we must continue to do good, if that is what we seek. In this life, we are the representatives of more than just ourselves.

The second meaning is personal and is the introduction to moving vertically in this journey. 

For the story of a 23-year-old artist, this section would be described as “the come-up”.

Lastly, each person has an introverted and reserved side to their character.

Often choosing to hide talents, disciplines and passions.

We also have confidence that is often mistaken for arrogance.

This aids us in portraying fearlessness and personality within our character.

Experience “INTRO-2-VERT” and witness the work of an “Extra-Introvert".


Artist Statement:

"My name is Dylan Tiaki also known as “Blanc Phase” (pronounced Blank Face). 

I am a 23-year-old artist based in North Shore, Auckland. 

Largely Influenced by a range of Music, Dance, Fashion, and Poetry, my main source of expression is through Art. My works are made from a mixture of acrylics, oils & pastels on medium to large stretched canvases. 

Faces are a signature statement in my works, so I tend to include them both clearly and secretly among the layers. This adds a form of playfulness for my audience to interact with as they interpret my work."

“I’m no extrovert, I’m just a confident introvert.” - Dylan Tiaki (BLANC-PHASE)
