The British designer and artist Leslie L. Lane who has lived for many years in Carinthia, takes a new approach to art in the exhibition "Enrichment", which is now being shown in the gallery of the historic Kraigher house. Lane gives his paintings to artist colleagues, who then add or change in their own style.
This collaborative development process stimulates artistic innovation, creativity and produces some surprising results. It can be clearly seen that the results are an enrichment for both sides.


The abstract series with unconventional material combinations, Lane has been painting since the Millennium. Variations with mostly a reflecting, silver middle stripe producing informal abstract painting allowing the viewer to interpret what he or she is seeing, a landscape or a seascape or perhaps just a decorative painting,abstract.
Earlier, Lane painted realistic or photorealistic paintings, large format, oil on canvas or board. Later experimenting with different chemicals, often incompatible, sprays, acryl, nitro and oil, producing some interesting results sometimes quite surprising also for Lane himself but as is mostly in art, if the artist goes on, the technique improves and changes. The first experiments were in quite a small format but became larger as Lane became more confident of the results.
Lane lives and works at Schloss Emmersdorf.
