A look at the recent exhibition 'Facts & Fictions' by New Zealand artist Tony Lane at the Auckland gallery Black Asterisk.
'Art history, spirituality and the landscape are infinitely entwined in Lane’s intricately detailed and often lavishly gilded icons. Each element a religious experience and its own public and private narrative. It’s impossible not to imagine how the paintings would look with lit votives crowded on an alter beneath, their flickering light making the gilding gleam and the shadows deeper than the darkest hour of the soul.'
