Anthony Lane: Biography

Born in 1961 in Springs, South Africa
Lives and works in Cape Town, South Africa

Anthony Lane is a full time sculptor and multi award-winning designer, who skillfully marries the technical sophistication of a master draughtsman with an instinctive understanding of three dimensional forms and mass. His sculptural projects deal primarily with contemporary abstract representations of the human form while also investigating the themes of order and chaos. Colour theory, music, humanitarian and social issues and the influence of social media on society are also explored in his practices. A lover of architecture his works have strong structural and mathematical aesthetic. Working on multiple projects simultaneously allows for cross- pollination of themes creating a dialogue between his works despite their diverse subjects.

Through the labour intensive process of hand forming individual   stainless steel plates, and then meticulously constructing his unique, fragmented sculptures, the artist transforms a somewhat cold and impersonal medium into energetic, cascading shapes, full of life and expression. Carefully considered and placed, the shaped stainless steel mimics the intricate curves of the human body, exposing visual clues, which simultaneously reveal and conceal when viewed from different angles. These bold, expressive representations with their reflective surfaces provide the viewer an entry point to Lane’s seemingly meditative projection, which seeks to encapsulate the transference of light between the interior and exterior. The illusion of shapes and forms created by the reflections in the steel simultaneously project and recede, becoming a metaphor for the human condition.

“ What interests me is pursuing work that has integrity, originality and transcends time and fashion”

His innovative sculptures have been received with high acclaim by both African and international collectors alike.

Lost Souls | Anthony Lane

Anthony Lane and Eclectica Contemporary present a discourse on the Syrian Humanitarian crisis to Cape Town.

As Anthony say’s “It is human nature to forget. As we are bombarded with so much new information on a daily basis, it is my wish for The Lost Souls Project to keep the dialogue alive. The plight of refugees the world over is ongoing. They are faced with the daunting challenge of building new lives in unfamiliar environments, carrying their memories of lost homes, families and countries with them. The possibility of returning to the lives they once had, a dream that may never be realized”.
