(b. 1982) lives in San Francisco, CA. He graduated Bachelor of Fine Arts from Academy of Art University, and studied painting and printmaking in Italy in 2009. He is now an instructor at Academy of Art University. Lance is represented by John Pence Gallery in San Francisco, and exhibits internationally with The Art Collective in London.
Lance works on large canvases and panels, and utilizes oil, acrylic, encasutic, and various printmaking techniques. The compositions typically feature single or multiple figures set within stark or abstracted environments. The artist portrays a variety of figures including historical men and women, mythological archetypes, self portraiture, and people close to him. A sense of movement is stressed using loose, expressive brushwork. Depicting the specific likeness of a figure is not what he is after. Instead, he is more concerned with capturing the mysterious energy people eminate.
"The various roles we play as human beings are often more mercurial than we might suspect. At times, they’ll suddenly slip away to reveal the unexpected. Moments like these hold great fascination for me."
Select works will be exhibited at Frameless Gallery in London beginning July 9th.
