Liz Lane is a nationally known painter and the owner of Liz Lane Gallery, a contemporary art gallery in Homewood, Alabama. Her studio is located inside the gallery as well as a carefully curated collection from other regional artists. She, her partner, Chase, two young children and four fur babies enjoy living in Birmingham and being a part of a thriving art environment.
Liz graduated from the University of Alabama with a degree in fashion design. Abstract principles of design that once influenced her brief time in the fashion industry now influence her art. Lane explores the energy behind people, objects and moments in her abstracts. She pushes back against traditional linear narrative, and believes meaningful stories can be found without typical order.
Each piece pulls from the moment it is created in, therefore, each piece is unique in inspiration and thought. Lane uses her brush to preform a dance on canvas, expressive, powerful, and unhindered by rules. A mix of emotions fill the layers of her paintings, but her ultimate goal is for the layers to have coherence and balance; a reflection of a personal balance Lane strives to find.
