About

Later in his career, T. L. Lange created a series of paintings depicting a singular abstracted flower, figure, or object. This is one of the few remaining "flower" examples from this series. Born in Oil City, Pennsylvania in 1965, T.L. Lange grew up around Washington, D.C. After a childhood imbued with a natural creative impulse, Lange pursued formal training in fine art at Winthrop College, South Carolina. After two years of schooling, Lange realized his greatest education would occur in the presence of artists actively creating, as opposed to the confined realm of the classroom. Lange moved to Atlanta where he was educated by working professional artists, and after two years there, he moved to North Carolina, where he maintained his home and atelier until his untimely death at the age of 36. According to Lange, he started his work with “concrete visions” and actually began several paintings at one time. He tried to allow some form of synchronicity to determine his next decision. As the artist said, “I make marks for the sake of themselves. I create error that I find attractive in all of our everyday lives. However, I leave it hanging three marks shy of discernment. What I mean by that is that I choose that it not be understood or to be scrutinized by its detail or its adherence to reality — only to be seen for its sense and its nostalgic response without my personal sentiment.” Of his artistic process, Lange said that he "begins with a sense of space and a glimpse of how an object can occupy that space. I then break up that space until I reach greater detail. In a sense, I magnify things until their details take on a life of their own and begin to shine. In this way, I've discovered that magnified details can become their own whole entity. The creative force behind my work may come from the mutterings of my psyche or from marks made unintentionally by spills or decay...I create with chaos. It is very simple: we all create our own form of chaos and then choose, over time, to continue or to change. While I am working, it is wonderful to be in 'non-thought mode' where there are no preconditioned rules, a meditative wave that has no time, and where I can forget what I am doing. I derive the compositions from the beauty of chaos in decay, the colors of rusty pipes, and layers of billboard advertisements. Paintings are everywhere. I keep the studio floor littered with photographs, torn paper, and flecks of paint-objects to trip over while looking for something else. I find purpose in the very act of discovering how to make all the elements work together in my space, in my time…" In addition to the profound impact he left on other artists, he also made his mark with those who have an affinity for fine artwork. Lange created works of art that he gave a story and a narrative to, however his vision for his works and process of creation resulted in artworks that allowed for the viewer to create their own story about the piece, and to see what they wanted to see based off of their own experiences. What he created was a remarkable and relatable body of work. Colors: red, yellow, blue, black Notes: flower, abstract
