Like Susan Rothenberg and Robert Moskowitz, whose work is also included in this exhibition, Lois Lane was included in the seminal New Image painting exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City in 1978. In the early 1980s, the artist experimented with color and gesture. Later in the decade she returned to the restraint and subtlety of monochrome paintings such as Untitled, exhibited here. In 1987, esteemed New York Times critic Roberta Smith applauded Lane for her return “to her earlier use of emblematic silhouettes embedded in mysterious black-on-black surfaces.”
