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)

Tony Ogle - Selected Works

Lake House Arts is pleased to present:

Tony Ogle
Selected Works - 1996 - 2023

Friday 15th March - Thursday 28th March 

Ogle Gallery

Opening celebration: Friday 15th March, 4pm


For over three decades, I’ve been creating paintings that represent my connection to the landscape.  New Zealand’s coastline is the source of my artistic inspiration along with ocean activities that provide ongoing wellbeing in my life. 

The coastal margin where sea and land collide is a meeting place of elemental forces that create a unique geology as well as providing shelter and nourishment for generations through time. 

My connection to this margin has captivated me since my early years growing up in Castor Bay in the ‘60s and ‘70s, and I feel grateful to be able to express through my art, the lifestyle, impressions and feelings it evokes in me. 

Upon returning to NZ in 1991 after a long OE, I decided to resume my art practice and initially worked from a studio between Belmont and Devonport.  In 1994 I left there to join friends living at the Lake House when it was still located near Takapuna beach.  I lived and worked from the House for two years and was involved in its relocation to Fred Thomas Drive. 

Since then I have lived away from Auckland and now, in conjunction with a retrospective exhibition in my city gallery, I am returning to the Lake House to show a selection of screenprints and paintings covering off the intervening years. It is very exciting to be back showing my artwork in the House where so many good memories reside and to help celebrate its ongoing successful transition into a community art hub.

Lake House Arts is pleased to present 'Echoes in Time', a photographic exhibition by Rachael Smith and Gerard Emery.

Juxtaposing histories through imagery from a German Concentration Camp and New 
Zealand Postage stamps.

“Echoes in time” invites the viewer to explore a unique and thought-provoking collection of 
work highlighting the striking contrast between two seemingly disparate, yet inextricably 
entwined narratives. Imagery created using subjects from the same era, this exhibition 
showcases the divergent paths taken by humanity during a pivotal period in history. The 
careful selection of archival photographs capturing the starkness inside a concentration 
camp, juxtaposed with the vibrant colours of New Zealand pictorial history, a landscape 
untouched by the immediate physical devastation of war, but deeply impacted by conflict. 
We invite you to engage in a visual dialogue that challenges our perception of history and 

Patterns of Memory:Korean Moshi Jogakbo Patchwork Art

Sunday 15 October 2023 - Friday 27 October 2023

Moshi Jogakbo is a traditional Korean patchwork technique with deep cultural significance. It involves creating vibrant textiles used as wrapping cloths for various purposes, symbolising connections between givers and receivers. These clothes were passed down through generations and carried meanings through colours, patterns, and stitching techniques. This Korean jogakbo exhibition is an exhibition where people who love traditional Korean gyobang(women's life in Joseon) crafts gather to share their stories.

Matthew Son - In Search of Ordinary Life

Saturday 30 September 2023 - Friday 13 October 2023

Matthew Son

In Search of Ordinary Life

Ogle Gallery

September 30th - 13th October

Opening celebration: 4pm Sunday 1st October


What does the “ordinary” mean? Humans always long for something special. 

          However, its speciality is just an illusion. After reaching the speciality that humans  

          have pursued so much, the speciality is no longer special. 

          This is because humans seek out another speciality. 


          The future’s speciality is an illusion. Enjoying the mediocrity of the present, that  

          could be missed due to the illusion, will be the best happiness humans can have.  


          After all, enjoying everyday ordinary life is a already enjoying the special life that  

          you have dreamed of. 

          Ordinary daily life in this sense will always be the main theme of my artworks.


Artist Biography: 


           My name is YG Matthew Son. I was born in Korea in 1952 and immigrated to NZ with     

           my family in 1992.   I currently live in Takapuna, North Shore.  

           I majored in graphic design at Chung-Ang University in Seoul, Korea, and  

           after graduation, I was in charge of advertising design and advertising production for       

           various companies for about 10 years at a large inhouse agency.         

           After that, I became independent and ran a private advertising production company   

           for 7 years. Even though I worked so passionately, I wanted to paint someday.  

           When I came to NZ, I had to work on my livelihood, so I couldn't start painting until I 

           was over 60 years old.    

           I started learning painting at Lake House Art Class for two years.   

           I participated in the 8th group exhibition and another small group exhibition  

           of 3 artists as a member of the Korean Art Association in Auckland, NZ.

           I will be opening my first private exhibition at Lake House Art Center in 

           Takapuna. The period is scheduled from September 29 to October 13.

Stephen Perry

Climate Resistance

Photographic Exhibition

Ogle Gallery

Spetember 16th - 29th

The work is about the futility of hard constructions to hold back the daily tides and weather that is marking climate change. It's almost a metaphor for the climate denialism that persists.

Thursday Art Club - Group Exhibition

Saturday 29 April 2023 - Friday 12 May 2023

Thursday Art Club

Group Exhibition

Joanne Mortimore, Louise Sillitoe, Penny Adams, Shan Craig, Cynthia Archer, Pauline Feltham

'The Thursday Art Club' took its name from Richard Osman's 'The Thursday Murder Club'. There are five of us - all great fans of Richard Osman's books. Mostly we paint in watercolours, but sometimes an acrylic or two might appear.

We meet on a Thursday and can easily spend the day painting and enjoying each other's company. In between, we set the world right commenting back and forth on the news of the day and what is happening on the global spectrum.

Elizabeth Warde paints portraits and landscapes using her photography to reflect details and shapes for trees and water.

Penny Adams paints landscapes, yachts, tree - anything with lots of colour and contrast - and paints it very well indeed.

Shann Craig is very good with animals and landscapes - subjects close to her heart from her native South Africa. Her paintings of giraffes are to die for!

Louise Sillitoe paints landscapes and still life - anything that has plenty of colour and contrast.

Joanne Mortimore's favourite subjects are South Island landscapes and occasional flocks of sheep.

Cynthia Archer paints birds and landscapes in both watercolour and acrylic.

Pauline Feltham specialises in painting bird life using both watercolours and acrylics.



Jessica Douglas - Unbounded

Saturday 1 April 2023 - Friday 28 April 2023

Jessica Douglas


Ogle Gallery

1st - 28th April

Opening celebration: 4pm Sunday 2nd April

Jessica’s practice investigates the complexity of human relationships which are inherently intertwined and interconnected, to acknowledge that we rely on each other for our physical and psychological well being and survival. She draws on the metaphor of the cell walls semi-permeable membrane to evoke the concept of separation and transmission simultaneously; conveying ideas of transference, seepage and flow between distinct separate entities. Application of paint brushed on in thin wash overlapping layers illustrate ideas of complex interconnections, proximity and exchange. Under and over layers are highlighted equally. Lines / edges act as barriers and bridges halting flow while at other times creating connecting channels. Similarly, colour oscillates between oppositional strident complementary combinations, and closely related colours sitting alongside each other to create vivid and hovering compositional colour plays. 

Her practice inhabits a transitional space that evokes an inner world revealing rational and irrational truths. Each painting emerges from the canvas through a meditative and intuitive decision making process, with mistakes and process visible, to create works that open up and evolve before the eye.

Jessica has recently had work in The National Contemporary Art Award 2022, The Aotearoa  art fair in  21 and 22, and  solo exhibition ‘Cells’ at Northart in 2021. She has a Masters of Fine Arts from Auckland University and has received the Sawtell-Turner Painting Prize, the Bickerton-Widdowson Trust Memorial Scholarship, University of Canterbury, and the Joe Raynes Scholarship, University of Auckland. Her work is held in several New Zealand collections.

Artist statement:

"Carving is part of my Maori Heritage. My maternal grandfather, Pani Paora was Maori of full blood, Ngāti Wharekōkōwai, Ngāti Kahungunu and Tūhoe. He was a talented artist, poet and a very creative man. I learned my art at The Learning Connexion in Wellington and Lower Hutt. I graduated with a Diploma in Art and Creativity with Honours. In 1999 I met Tony Kāpua at Papaiouru Marae, Ohinemutu Rotorua, where my mother grew up with her Arawa whanau. After watching Tony carving for about an hour he invited me to try it. He drew a pattern on a piece of rimu, gave me a chisel and mallet and said “carve this”. Although I had never done anything like this before he was so surprised at how well I had done and he said to me “Don’t put the tools down!” He said I had a natural talent and most of his students would take months to achieve what I had; in less than an hour. Subsequently I spent 6 months further training at Mihiroa Marae, Pakipaki, tutored by Master Carver, Tūhoe Huata. I also worked with Te Maru Marsh at Te Poho-o-Tangiianui Marae in Napier. In this time I learnt the significance of the Tribal patterns/styles of different Iwi and Master Carvers. I now carve in my own unique style which enables me to combine my fascination with carving and colour. I don’t plan my carvings and painting, the inspiration just comes from my soul, guided by the spiritual aspects of nature. The happiest memories of my childhood were playing in the trees, surrounded by the birds, flowers, all living things and the way in which light and colour influenced my world."

Auckland Plein Air Artists Inaugural Group Exhibition

Sunday 11 September 2022 - Friday 30 September 2022

Opening celebration: 4pm Sunday 11th September, Becroft Gallery

Artist talk: 11am, Saturday 17th September, Becroft Gallery


The Auckland Plein Air group of artists was originally set up by Russell Hollings and a few of his artist friends. The group is made up of both professional and student artists, meeting up once a month to paint at various locations around the Auckland area. The term plein air is a French term, which simply means “in the open air”, and was first used by the French impressionist movement, who preferred to paint in the open air to capture the true light, colour and atmosphere, something that is not achievable from photographs in a studio. This movement has now taken off around the world, and is recognised as one of the fastest growing movements in the art world.

Included in this exhibition are 10 artists from the group, with each artist exhibiting four of their most recent works. The exhibition is the group’s first, and it is intended that we will be making it an annual event to be held here at the wonderful Lake House Arts

Tuesday 23 August 2022 - Thursday 8 September 2022


'Our Matariki' is an exhibition that showcases how the schools on the Takapuna-Devonport peninsula celebrated the months of Matariki in 2022. Alongside larger peninsula wide celebrations, many schools held their own community festivals and classroom activities. A cross section of these events and experiences are documented here through artworks, stories, photography and video.

Schools represented are:

Takapuna Grammar • Belmont Intermediate • Devonport Primary • Belmont Primary • Vauxhall Primary • Hauraki School • Wilson School • Bayswater School • Stanley Bay School • St Leo's Catholic School

Seven of these schools belong to the Devonport-Takapuna Kāhui Ako or Community of Learning. This exhibition has run biannually in different forms since 2017 and continues to create a visual focus and identity for the Devonport-Takapuna Kāhui Ako. In addition, it gives our ākonga the experience of displaying their work in a public space. For many of our young participants it will be their first time in such a show. 

Works will also be displayed in the upstairs gallery.

Wild About Colour : Catherine Mitchell & Diane Taylor

Sunday 1 August 2021 - Sunday 22 August 2021

Opening celebration: Sunday 1st August 4pm, Ogle Gallery

Capturing the colours of life can lead to many different expressions and feelings. Colour can be bright, invigorating and uplifting, or it can be subdued, quiet and relaxed. Depending on how we feel, can relate to the colours we like to surround ourselves. Colour has traditional definitions, White for purity, black for darkness, red being fiery, green being clean and eco-friendly. Blue can be cool and fresh like the sea and yellow, warm like the sun. We have created a mixture of feelings and expressions with this collection.

About Clare Woods:


For as long as I can remember, painting and design have been a huge part of my life. As a child I was given free rein. My parents were super supportive of my creative streak. I have vivid memories of bright colours and patterns spilling over my walls from the water colours I’d painted on the windows. Other kids in the street couldn’t believe I was allowed to paint anything I wanted to in my space.

I studied various art forms, majoring in graphic design and my art career began as a junior studio artist for one of New Zealands most prestigious graphic designers. It was the beginning of an amazing pathway in design that lead me to work as an art director for several leading advertising agencies. During that time digitalised design became the new normal. A really exciting progression.

I started my own design company in 1999 and began specialising in childrens book design. I loved it. At the same time I started to paint for my boys, and that lead to my own childrens art brand.

I have always been making art of one kind or another including fibre art and I really love a good yarn bomb in the middle of the night!

For the last decade I have been designing for web. It’s such an interesting field. The projects are incredibly diverse and every day is a school day! I get a real kick out of interpreting a client brief and making it sing.

It’s when I paint, though, that I am in my happy place. I am in an intuitive botanical phase at the moment. It’s very free and yet organised. I have no magic statement to make. I just want the viewer to feel good.

If I’m not designing or painting, I’m walking with my husband and our black lab Louie.
