Dane Lovett’s still-life’s are unlike any we’ve come across before. They’re executed in a way that makes them remarkably realistic, and they all incorporate a musical motif. Whether it’s a vase of a plant sitting on an old New Order CD or an intriguing stack of old VHS tapes, you’ll appreciate the references (Janis Joplin, Frank Zappa, Nirvana and Tupac all show up in one painting). The compositions are clean and minimal though not simple; for instance a vase with a leafy plant will be perched precariously on an old stack of albums or holding up a shelved set of BASF tape cassettes. Take a gander, it’s not your usual faire.
