James gives an exclusive insight on Cal Lane's exhibit at Burlington City Arts.

Bridging industry and fine art, Cal Lane eliminates the tough and imposing characteristics of steel and iron to create alluring, delicate, and intricate sculptural forms. Using wheelbarrows, shovels, and fuel tanks as her canvas, Lane transforms these once functional objects into ‘industrial doilies’ ornate with lacy motifs that reference domestic life. Soil is reinterpreted and re-purposed, elevating it from a modest material of the Earth to a medium for the artist’s imagination. Often contradictory, Lane’s work juxtaposes strength and fragility while blurring the often prejudiced lines between what is conceived as either masculine or feminine.
