David Mark Lane, AIA, an award winning architect was born in Hartford, Connecticut and has worked in Santa Barbara since 1989.
David received a Bachelor of Environmental Design from the University of Colorado, at Boulder. The focus of the Environmental Design Program was an approach to Architectural Design that was eventually to be known as Sustainable Design. The school’s curriculum foreshadowed the current wave of Green Design. Subsequently he has lived and worked in Vail, Colorado, Scottsdale, Arizona, Santa Barbara, California, and Paros, Greece.
The Great Recession has had the effect of shifting David’s focus to his artwork. He has been working with the computer graphics program known as Photoshop for almost 20 years. He uses Photoshop to paint, alter photographs and explore the infinite possibilities and combinations of
colors and forms.
My digital artwork endeavors to explore what I like to call the ‘Colorful Resonance’ between order and chaos. Much of my work is fanciful, and yet some of it attempts to comment on political and societal themes.
Many of my digital explorations include the manipulation of photographs, graphics, and symbols. I have been described as ‘neo-pop’….maybe so?
My technique often flows from pushing the filters in Photoshop to uses that I suspect they were not intentionally designed for.
My process… could best be described as trial and error… sprinkled with continuous refinement….and often ending with a happy accident.
Just recently Digital Arts: California
has honored me with their 'Stellar Art Award'. This is the second time they have included me in their digital only virtual gallery show.. 'True Colors 2'
