Rich Lanet (b. Los Angeles, CA).
Lives and works in Venice, California. He received a BS degree from the School of Architecture and Environmental Design at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo; along with studies at University of California, Berkeley fine arts department.
I have been an artist, a sculptor & a builder all my life. However it is only in the last year or two that I’ve been able to engage, create and share my art, and to dedicate the time and energy to put it out into the public domain.
My work is a model of how I see the world we all live in; I see shapes & forms, lines & angles, only on a much larger scale - - a scale that one day I would like to create my work at.
Much of my view of life is in shapes & forms, angles & perspectives, depth & shadows – always have and I’m sure I always will.
The art I create is an emotional response that allows me to share that point of view in a form that captures structure and design, using rough and finish materials that mimic my world. This world view is dynamic and shifts depending on one’s perspective, and so does my work which also changes based on a piece’s orientation, lighting and perspective.
