In her recent exhibitions at Cerritos College Art Gallery and LA Artcore Brewery Annex, Lane continues operate on the threshold between past and present. She explored this concept based upon half-forgotten memories of living in Hong Kong. Not simply create separate and autonomous objects, Lane translated her distant impressions into visceral experiences, creating ensemble of assemblages that work together as a whole to transform the space. Blending imagery from the past with her experience as a longtime resident of Los Angeles not only gives her ways of accessing and expressing her feelings, but shaping this imagery into a sculptural installation also allows her to construct a physical site that validates a sense of belonging.
