Ranna's art - (yes, the obligatory art-speak)
artist, Ranna® (Ranna-Lesley Lachlan) has been dedicated
to contemporary art practice since the 1970s.
days, she divides her professional and private life almost
equally between the U.S.A. and Australia, producing studio-based
art work and large scale ex-stallation projects (installations
outdoors). Click here for a summary of Ranna's
art projects at both locations.
art work defies convenient categorization
and pushes contemporary art into new territory technically,
conceptually, and visually. Ignoring trendy art world fashions
and expectations, Ranna's creativity has led to ethereal cutting
edge contemporary art that embraces the brush, the world around
her, and contemporary industrial materials, all signature
to her "Shimmer
Art™ " method. Ranna® has exhibited in
contemporary art galleries and museums in
Australia, Japan, Europe, and the U.S.A. and "has produced
a prodigious and significant
body of work" *.
