poster for Lane “Paintings and Works on Paper”

This event has ended.

Through paint, canvas, books, objects and ready-mades Lane explores through his work the relation between time and material. Combining bus tickets, diaries and other documents from the time of the Chinese Cultural Revolution with his own texts he formulates a range of visual relationships and associations. Through the materiality and history of the medium Lane’s work gains a completeness which places material at the very heart of his practice. Through the act of painting upon documents such as newspapers, diaries and other printed matter from the 1950’s onwards, Lane makes an intervention into history while as the same time suggesting its erasure and in recent years his minimal expression has come to be redefined and remade as if demonstrating the lack of difference between past and present.
