With the success of his career in full swing it would almost appear as though art chose Lane, not the other way around.
At the early age of seven Lane Timothy sold his first painting for $10. By sixteen he was well known around town, receiving commissions to paint mascots in school hallways and on gym floors. These projects marked the beginning of a prosperous future for this young artist. Lane’s diverse career has lead him through many cities and experiences including; leaving college early to start his own graphic design firm, landing a position at a large design firm in Salt Lake City, UT, and giving it all up to pursue his one true passion, painting.
Most recently Lane faced major obstacles that attempted to derail him personally and professionally. But these days you would never know it, he is keeping busy painting, living, and moving on.
With new works arriving in the gallery next week we took a moment to speak with Lane about life, art and what inspires him most.
BDG: In three words, describe your work.
Timothy: Nostalgic, thought-provoking, colorful.
BDG: What’s the best advice anyone has ever given you?
Timothy: Leave art school and don’t taint my natural talent learning others techniques…this way I kept a unique unmistakable look.
BDG: What does your new tattoo say and how is this relevant to you personally?
Timothy: “Art is triumph over chaos.” I have often found solace in this crazy world (with all of the trials and hardships I have been going through) when I am painting. I find a calmness comes over me and for that moment everything is ok. Sometimes I believe my art has literally saved me from feeling lost in this world.
Lane’s latest works will debut in a joint show with contemporary artist Henry Stinson in “Stumbling Toward Enlightenment” on Thursday May 13, 2010 from 6:00-9:00pm and will hang through May 26, 2010.(Map)
