Lane Cormick is an established Contemporary artist. His work has been featured in several exhibitions at key galleries and museums, including the Australian Center for Contemporary Art and the Daine Singer. 

Lane’s work draws from a wide array of influences including the aesthetics of the industrial and functional, investigation of skill and technique, performance, music, modernist and contemporary culture. These influences feed into an art practice that is open-ended and without predictable outcome.
