Although many see the Lego brick as just a child’s toy, many fine artists such as Nathan Sawaya and Sean Kenney have made the brick their choice of media. In fact, the Lego Group based their original colors based on the colors used by Danish artist Piet Mondrian.
Lance Schrader has always been an artist, primarily working in graphite pencils or Prismacolor. His endearing love of the Lego brick has brought him into a more sculptural realm. These new works highlight his fascination with the Buddhist and Hindi mandalas as well as Celtic interlace designs. You could say these new pieces have brought him “full circle.” Sadly, Lance also has affinity for puns.
