Lane uses fantastic imagery to turn life experiences into visual stories that primarily focus on people and their relationships with one another. Employing flora and fauna, Lane’s paintings often feature historical, political, or spiritual narratives as Christopher is passionate about these subjects. Christopher is a modern surrealist and a storyteller. Each painting can usually be broken down into several separate chapters or scenes yet are cohesive in theme. He uses vivid colors, lush symbolism, and double imagery to illustrate divisive topics, allowing viewers to see them through a new, perhaps softer lens. Christopher has created unity themed oil and acrylic paintings and presented them in multiple prominent group and solo exhibitions nationally and internationally. Lane’s current solo exhibition, Circle of Life, which illustrates how we are all interconnected, recently exhibited at the Sumter County Gallery of Art. Shown here, Lane's work titled Trojan Horse, which depicts how when something seems too good to be true, it usually is.
