Our of one newest members is Lana Sokoloff. Her massive abstractions defy the very concept of traditional art by breaking all the rules with such brazen chutzpah that she’s come full cycle and is garnering considereable respect and acclaim. Her bravery with paint is nothing short of heroic and the scale of her work inspires words like “epic” and “monumental” By consummating her sisterhood with nature duaring the application of paint to her canvases, natural forms begin to coalesce when you least expect them. At glance you see a figure or a face or butterfly or an alien space creature, but upon subsequent inspection you realize there were not solely the products of an artists mind. Something else had influence on these masterpieces. Lana Sokoloff, an aleatoric artist in the purest sense, had the daring to trust that something else and the results are something else indeed.”
Ray Cabarga “Aleatoric Art in 21st Century”, Book. November 30,2012
