As a multidisciplinary conceptual artist Lang's work is fuelled by personal yet universal challenges of war.  The lost of her childhood memory interwoven with the lingering resonance of historical trauma and our current unstable contemporary age combines to enhance her vision. She employs different processes and mediums including paint, resin, glass, concrete, ceramic and wool as a language to interpret and express an effective narrative that is poignant and compelling.

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 emigrated to New Zealand in 1982.  She bases herself in Auckland, New Zealand.

Her works are held in public and private collections nationally and internationally. She exhibits her works locally although recent exhibitions, Awards, Artist Residencies, and Fellowships have taken her work to international audiences in Australia, U.S.A and Europe.
