The highly manipulated photographic imagery of Dick Lane will be featured in an exhibit titled “The Iterated Landscape,” which will be on display from Feb. 13 to March 23 in the Southern Light Gallery at Amarillo College.

DICKlaneinThe gallery is located on the first floor of the Ware Student Commons at AC’s Washington Street Campus.

Lane is an associate professor of art at Texas Christian University. His fine art photographs have been in over 80 group and solo exhibitions and are in several private and museum collections nationally and internationally.

It was while pursuing a master’s degree at the University of Florida that Lane honed his knowledge and interest in highly manipulated forms of photographic imagery.

“My project (The Iterated Landscape) investigates using the landscape as a starting point,” Lane said. “But it’s inclusive of the traditional ‘straight’ photographic landscape as well as a large number of ‘iterations’ of those images – manipulations via hand work (painting and drawing on top of the image) and abstraction through manipulation via Adobe Photoshop.

“The resulting prints call into question the viewer’s concepts of beauty, the veracity of the photographic image and the nature of perception.”

This will be the second exhibition of photography at AC for Lane. His work previously graced the Southern Light Gallery back in 1995.
