RESONANCE OF HER REALISM
IN CONVERSATION WITH LANA EILEEN
Photography by Lana Eileen
Interview by Melanie Meggs
Through painting, photography and sculpture, Lana Eileen’s work fuses abstract elements with fine details, combining seemingly disparate fragments to evoke a sense ethereality laced with the enhancement of magic realism. In 2019, she undertook an artist residency in remote Iceland, then one on the island of Hrísy near the Arctic Circle in 2021. Previously based in New Zealand, Eileen currently at time of writing, resides in Tasmania, where she attends the School of Creative Arts and Media.
