Dane Lovett’s paintings are delicately crafted observations of familiar subject matter, from domestic plants and flowers to left over remnants of music and popular culture. His work often echoes traditional still-life painting, yet a familiar arrangement of flowers and vases take on new meaning with the inclusion of forgotten and outdated technology. Lovett merges a hazy, photorealistic formal technique with an experimental approach to surface matter, often applying his paint to aluminium or wooden board. A restrictive palette and play with positive and negative space enhance his distinct approach to mark making.
