Paintings in the gameSpace series draw inspiration from Buddhism, nature, Islamic architecture and industry. Partly schematic, partly metaphoric, the paintings incorporate a complex amalgam of archetypal organic plant forms juxtaposed with repetitive patterns extracted from architecture and surface textures of industrial materials. As a personal, spiritual take on the anonymity of geometry, the repetitive patterns are transformed into a "physical mantra" by processes of accretion and layering, combining both digital technology and various traditional printmaking processes.
Nature as both inspiration and eclipser of culture continues as a theme for Lanzetta. Paralleling a journey into a virtual world, the line between reality and imagination is bridged as benign houseplants, transformed into large, imposing silhouettes, challenge for supremacy against a celebratory palette of spiritual symbolism. Saturated, neon orange, pink, yellow and red remain firmly rooted in the intense, devotional experience of many of the world's great religious traditions.
Through the often literary, spiritual or nature-inspired titles a wide range of associations are invoked. A poetic, but accessible understanding of the emotive powers imbedded in pattern and nature, through memory and association, results.
