Artist bio

New Zealand born Samoan artist Ana Teofilo merges her Samoan heritage with western influence to create dynamic and contemporary Pasifika artworks.

Teofilo’s distinctive Polynesian motifs are rendered by the artist carving directly into shaped boards, working to small, mid, and large-scale in circular, square, and frangipani-like forms. She then adorns her carved surfaces with opaque glue dots that offer a reflective quality, echoing the surrounding colours and emphasising a sense of interplay between sculptural form and intricate detail.
