Of his work, he says, One painting leads to the next, while all the work relates as a stream of conscious flow. Drawing and painting are both attached to every single piece of work. I start with a sense of space and a glimpse of how an object can occupy that space. I break space until I reach the finest detail. I want the form to grow. I use my symbols, and those borrowed from my surroundings. I use words and text because of their availability and pattern. The words create tension when used to cover other symbols. They also act as confessions, associations, puns and definitions. I have been able to, with a great amount of good fortune, explore my potential. My only intent is to become better at my craft. In doing so, the work will speak with more clarity.
A finely controlled strength expressing itself with a remarkable degree of technical eloquence characterizes Lange's work, which is found in corporate and private collections throughout the United States and around the world.
