4 October - 3 November 2018

Tony Lane’s work addresses the world around us through the universal language of symbols. Lane is particularly interested in the primitive way symbols subjectively and potently communicate ideas.

Lane uses trees and flowers as a metaphor for the human figure and to speak of religious ideals while shying away from direct religious iconography.

The table motif refers to connectivity – the daily rituals of human activity, the sharing of meals and conversation. The table can also be an altar.

“Art is a form of communication otherwise you’d just be making art for yourself, and why would you do that”, says Tony Lane, “… one of the great things about art is that it tries to explain the world around us. It makes connections, like a hinge.”
