Acrylic and Mixed Media
An assemblage artist from Kent with a liking for all things mechanical, intricate and unusual, Dan Lane aka Mechanica creates sculptures with a dark yet beautiful take on natural forms by mechanical intervention; an industrial version of life.
Having worked as an engineer for fifteen years, Dan Lane began creating sculptures as a hobby three years ago. After being persuaded by family and friends, he went public with his artwork in April 2014, to an overwhelming response. In this short time he has been featured in a range of local and national newspapers, magazines and blogs, and even on the BBC 6 o'clock news. In August, he was selected to take part in the Summer Exhibition at Castle Fine Art in Mayfair, and was subsequently signed to Washington Green Fine Art Publishing. Now, he is preparing to exhibit his largest collection to date - 'Every Piece Of Me' - which will debut at Castle Fine Art in June 2015.
On the new collection, Dan says: "Each piece in this collection will be a more amplified version of anything I have done before stretching my abilities to create the most visually intricate and detailed sculptures. When people view this collection I want them to spend hours getting lost in each piece and taking in all the small details."
