“Regular readers of this website will know that I am a fan of the abstracts by James Lane. It surprised me, this year, to discover that his palette has changed to subtler, softer hues. As ever, though, he creates a tremendous sense of depth by layering the pigments. Unlike abstracts that seem to lie flat on the wall, these invite you to peer into their enthralling inner worlds until you feel like you are losing yourself in them.” Patrick Donohue – dilettantesdairy.com
I am an abstract artist with a dual artistic personality. I am both a perfectionist (“Do it right!”), and an abstract expressionist (“Just do it”). The perfectionist in me desires a path to follow but the abstract expressionist in me seeks an adventure to unfold off the beaten track. The tension created by these two diverging paths fuels a sense of the unexpected in my art.
