About

Zach McLane is an artist and writer living and working in Los Angeles. His work explores the limits of representation and takes shape in essays, videos, and poems. Merging aspects of memoir with theoretical discourse and artistic critique, he finds intimate connections between seemingly disparate ideas. McLane’s research-based practice is grounded critical theory, art history, and film theory. His recent video work uses processes of degradation and repetition as generative tools for meaning. He holds a BA in Narrative Studies from the University of Southern California, where he studied narrative form and contemporary visual culture.
