Tim Lane

Tim’s anachronistic style takes strong influence from Classic Literature and World Mythologies and it is this that gives his art its rich narrative quality. The consideration of Myth especially, for Tim, provides a structure of multi-layered, open narrative that inspires highly symbolic imagery that not only prompts the viewer to find out more for themselves, but seeks to explain the world in a visceral, imaginative, dark way, often with a animalistic element.

“I like to ‘animalize’ people with the ‘animal mask’ revealing an often hidden inner quality of the eternal human character as very much part of the animal kingdom.”
