Learn From Lorna Crane

Contemporary Australian Artist

After completing five years of arts training at the University of Wollongong in the mid eighties Lorna Crane gained an Associate Diploma of Creative Art followed by the Bachelor of Creative Arts graduating with Distinction.

Lorna has been involved with many artist run initiatives and community arts projects over many years, including Art Arena Gallery Inc, Megalo Access Arts and the ANCA Dickson studio complex in Canberra. During this time she participated in many solo and group exhibitions.

She was awarded the Sir William Keys Churchill Fellowship researching community arts and mental health in 2002. Her work has been represented in many group and selected exhibitions – regionally, nationally and internationally.

Known as The Brushmaker Lorna sources materials from her natural environment including driftwood, bamboo, organic fibres along with found objects making unique rudimental and utilitarian brushes in a variety of shapes and sizes.

Career highlights include residencies with the Bundanon Trust, Alice Springs, Broken Hill Art Exchange, Berlin, New Zealand, Venice, Italy. During September 2016 she traveled to Barcelona for a two week residency at Art Print Residence to make a series of unique prints. During February/March 2017 she was an artist in residence at Bull Bay, North Bruny Island Tasmania. Upcoming residency is at Cloudbough in Kandos, NSW March 2021.

‘Lorna Crane belongs to a group of artists who feel a reverential connection to the earth (the elements, wind, rain, heat, dust, growth and decay) and immerse themselves in it: their body, their gestures, their choice of materials.

Their work is a kind of choreography of the bush, a down-and-dirty embracing of it, utilising methods that often mimic how nature itself behaves, how it evolves, forms and dissolves. As such, the works rely less on what is before the eye and much more on what the senses tell us; the resulting imagery being an experience rather than a depiction of something.’
