Tim Lane And His Animalized PeopleJuxtapoz // Thursday, 30 Jan 2014
Influenced by literature and ancient mythology, Tim Lane’s anachronistic style is rich and imaginative. Easy to get lost in the layers of details, heavy with allusion, Lane’s drawings and paintings are mindfully crafted, allowing the viewer to investigate and discover more at their own leisure.
“I love World Mythology, Classical Greek Myth and Hindu Myth particularly, as it has a religious intensity and explains the world in such a visceral, imaginative, dark way. It involves all aspects of life and death, often with an animalistic element, explaining the human condition but as very much part of the animal world. I often ‘animalize’ people with the ‘animal mask’ exhibiting the inner quality of the human character.”
