• Tony Lane

Lane’s visual language is deeply connected to painting’s history, from thirteenth century Italian painters such as Giotto to the Spanish still-life painters of the seventeenth century and through to his New Zealand upbringing and exposure to New Zealand as a place that would imprint its landforms into his psyche. His mountain ranges are infused with an almost ethereal light, at times resting below the sea, or snow covered, they are volcanic, familiar to us, just as they were in the Renaissance, as emblems of beauty, majesty, and mystery.

“Art is a form of communication,” says Tony Lane, “otherwise you would just be making art for yourself and why would you do that. One of the great things about art, from its beginnings, is that it tries to explain the world around us. Art makes connections, it helps us to see beyond the finite and into the infinite, and the limitless possibilities of existence.”
