Fine gauze and the misty images of our sensitive memories
form the substance of Raha Lane's expression. Quality is
a thing of feeling, and Raha's use of subtle imagery, blended
tonality, and balanced integration of shape combine to create
that feeling. This is what her art is about-pulling at the
emotional strings of memory that is no more coherent than
the lost edge of a dream.
Creative expression holds a natural
place in Raha Lane's life. She was born in 1973 in Shiraz,
the historic Capitol of Persia, famed as the valley of the
Roses and Nightingales. Her father GH Yunessi is an internationally
acclaimed artist whose work is highly prized on three continents. From
his influence, Raha remembers best the lessons of building
layers of paint to create imagery.
Her development as an
artist evolved through her studies in High School and College. With
her formal education completed, Raha began the process of
establishing herself as an artist. She participated in many
international exhibitions around the world and received great
acclaim. After this success she took up residence in Europe
to expand her studies of European style.
Her creative success
brought her to California where she now lives and continues
to produce, teach, and exhibit Fine Arts. Raha's exotic Near
Eastern background and her European lifestyle combine to
create a backdrop that is evident in her unique work. When
she's not painting, she can be found playing with her children,
writing gourmet recipes, swimming, diving, and perhaps unique
amongst her fellow artists she also loves motorcycling.
result of Raha's dedication to her art can be seen in corporate
and private collections around this country and in many prestigious
venues throughout Europe and the Near East.
