The Fragile Dichotomy

Lost Within

Lost Within 24 x 24 ″ acrylic on panel


"As a beginning, I have chosen to explore the theme of serene motion on land and water in several of the series I have produced thus far. The technique of creating motion with brush strokes in a calm nature scene represents much of the childhood nostalgia that simultaneously fascinates me– such as time, nature, recreation, and light. Painting also provides a source of identification for me, as it displays the same nuances as many of my own childhood activities. My images indicate a precision of detail and an attention to form are as important as the easy grace and melodious balance of the overall composition."

Art became even more of a central focus in Aline's life when she married hyper-realist Robert Lange, a renowned artist sharing her New England heritage. The two learned and practiced fundamental artistic techniques while Lange completed his education at Rhode Island School of Design. After moving to South Carolina in 2003, the couple opened a Fine Art Gallery and much of Aline's time was spent in an administrative role. However, her natural and unique talent became quickly self-evident, and she began painting along side her husband. After five years of working with Lange, Aline decided to focus exclusively on developing her own style.
