The work of artist Cal Lane is something that elicits an audible gasp from me each time I see it. Her sculpture and installations are studies in contrasts, marrying industrial and ornate, robust and delicate, permanent and temporary.
Car tyres and icing sugar.
Dirt lace floor installation.
Filigree Car Bombing.
I like to work as a visual devil’s advocate, using contradiction as a vehicle for finding my way to an empathetic image, an image of opposition that creates a balance - as well as a clash - by comparing and contrasting ideas and materials.
