The paintings and drawings of artist Kelly McLane are rooted in images of nature. McLane lives and works in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains and draws much of her inspiration from the landscape, people and animals of that area. Interrupting the imagery are references to the media culture via telephone and cable lines, internet search engines, and bizarre CNN news tales. The artist’s previous work depicted post-apocalyptic events, while her current work takes place in the present, investigating concepts of supremacy and social development through metaphors. McLane was born in 1968 and now lives and works in Los Angeles, Calif. Currently, the artist has an exhibition on view with CRG Gallery in New York. The artist is also represented by the Angles Gallery in Santa Monica, CA.
