Lane Twitchell was born in Salt Lake City, Utah and earned his B.F.A. from the University of Utah and M.F.A. from the School of Visual Arts in New York City. Currently, he lives and works in Brooklyn, NY and is represented by Edward Tyler Nahem Fine Art in New York.
Twitchell takes a highly distinctive approach to the issues of nature, culture, architecture and space. His work explores nature using an idiosyncratic vocabulary of images and forms within historical and contemporary architectural spaces and elements found in the urban environment.
He has held six solo shows in New York, Washington D.C., and Salt Lake City and has participated in more than 30 group exhibitions across the country. His commissions include work with the Chicago Public Art Program and the Department of Cultural Affairs Percent Art Program. In addition, Twitchell has received several awards and residencies including a "Craft Fellowship" and a "Drawing Fellowship" from the New York Foundation for the Arts.
His work can be found in the collections of the Art Bank Program, Washington D.C.; The Goetz Collection, Munich, Germany; The Progressive Corporation, Mayfield, OH; and the Neuberger Berman Collection, New York City.
