Visual Artist Profile: Bonnie Lane
artscareer.com.au is an online professional development resource for artists and arts educators working in all art forms.
Bonnie Lane (b.1986) is a video artist currently based in Melbourne and Los Angeles.
Working predominantly in video and video installation, Bonnie’s practice focuses on universal human experiences from an often-existential perspective.
Exploring emotional responses to the world in which we live, she utilises the atmosphere and history of existing architectural spaces to create immersive environments to be ‘stepped into’.
Visual techniques such as masking and unusual methods of video projection, create a departure and escape from the ‘flat rectangular screen’ and allow video to be used as a means of recreating memory and triggering sensorial experience.
Her artworks are often wholly or partly autobiographical - an amalgamation of experiences and memories, dreams and nightmares, fantasies and fears.
Bonnie is the recipient of numerous grants, awards and scholarships from the Australia Council for the Arts, The National Association for the Visual Arts, the City of Melbourne and more.
She has participated in artist-in-residence programs in Los Angeles, Utah, Vermont, New Mexico, Norway, Portugal, and Seoul. Her video installations have been exhibited nationally and internationally including solo exhibitions: Make Believe at Anna Pappas Gallery, Melbourne, including a selection of works at the Melbourne Art Fair (2012), Present Memory at Linden Centre for Contemporary Arts, Melbourne (2012), Sleepless at Art Currents Institute, New York City (2012), and Into the Dark, an elaborate solo video installation exhibition spanning each of BUS Projects’ 5 basement gallery spaces (2011).
Bonnie holds a Bachelor of Fine Art from the Victorian College of the Arts (2007) and a first-class Honours Degree from Monash University (2010).
Bonnie Lane is represented by Anna Pappas Gallery.
