ABOUT THE ARTIST: Dane's art is a calibration of lives past for their contribution to the human experience. Although many of the people he paints are not famous or well known, “deep in our soul we are connected to them. They lived their lives as we live now and they have been where we are yet to go.”
Bill Withers said “the wisdom of the future is the past. Down city streets and wise old southern drawers. The things that say the most say things that last."
Dane has taken his artwork towards new going from realism to a stylish combination developing his own interpretations of surrealism and primitive elongation. He has established himself as one of the premier painters of African American Art. He has a creative approach to artistic images of the common man, woman and child. Dane?s images are inspired of African Americans in and out of daily life, popular entertainment, and the world of sports. He has exhibited his works throughout the United States at art festivals, galleries, trade shows, convention centers and sports arenas where he has received numerous awards.
His work has been exhibited at the African American Museum in Philadelphia, and also in one-man shows at Howard University, Widener University, West Chester University, University of Pennsylvania, Penn State University and the Butler Institute of Fine Art in Youngstown, Ohio. One of his baseball images has been incorporated into the Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, N.Y., and he has created a mural for Turner Field in Atlanta.
Collectors of Dane's artwork include notables such as Dave Winfield, Nelson Mandela, Bill Cosby, the estate of Ossie Davis, Nabisco Corporation, Prudential, MBNA and AstraZeneca.
