Angela Lane’s three-dimensional abstract canvases are organic structures that synthesize distinct elements. The core of the work is the painter’s pursuit of form.
The work begins with the creation of a dimensional canvas constructed of wood. The canvas is then sewn into the proper shape to be stretched over the shaped wood constructions. Line is the only visual language employed to further shape the form. The resulting effect breaks the two-dimensional plane into geometrical constructions, thereby forsaking flatness to make a volumetric form. The work implores the viewer to look carefully and appreciate the experience of seeing.
Lane’s pieces are a fusion of organic, geometric sculpture, illusion and physical form forced together into an original choreography. The viewer experiences the concrete nature of the constructed dimensional form and the optical illusions within. You are invited to participate in the energy and life of the forms.
Angela Lane’s work is in both private and public collections including the Alberta Foundation for the Arts and the Bank of Montreal Corporate Collection.
In 2021 she was selected to participate in the London Art Biennial and was the Maryland Institute College of Art’s nominee for the prestigious Joan Mitchell Foundation Grant.
