Dane Lovett's paintings take the old still life form and update it by way of their subjects: modern gadgets. We spy not only the Roland TB-303 Bass Line analog bass synthesizer (circa 1982), but also a cornucopia of VHS tapes and compact discs. The results are beautiful, and every bit as calming an...
