The Plastic Organic Paintings of Marion Lane

Artist Marion Lane creates almost otherworldly abstract paintings.  Her peculiar style and use of acrylic on panel seems to belong to an action other than painting.  Lane’s shapes appear to grow organically, emerging more from cell division than brush stroke.  However, the inorganic nature of Lane’s medium isn’t lost on her.  Rather, she seems to exploit the plasticity of acrylic paint, making it plain in the shape and sheen of her fantastic subjects.  Lane’s pieces at once explore abstraction and figuration as well as the natural and synthetic.
