Lance works in an art style called L- for Lily which is dedicated to her mother. She made a collection of art pieces inspired from everyday life, part of the Modern Day Hero Project.
"I thought this project was about discovering something beautiful in everyone. To chase the stereotypes of the jock, the drama queen the underdog. But what I didn’t realise is how quick things can change. If everything you did equalled down to a series of events and interactions, dwindling moments and memories. What would you take with you and how would you trip?
The modern day hero project is made up of very brave participants.
I think one of the hardest things people can do is to be brutally honest about themselves. The idea was to break the stereotype that only artist’s understand art. I provided the pictures. They provided the words.
Why didn’t I just draw portraits?
Because this project wasn’t about someone’s physical appearance. Physical appearance is merely a vehicle that carries our personality around. It was about what made them tick, to see them smile, laugh, their fears and their hopes. So I collaged their traits into pictures.
'Has anyone ever told you, you were beautiful?' This was just my way of communicating that message, without fear of sincerity being misplaced. I don’t think they even realise they are the modern day heroes.
Why do we bother? Because maybe one day the beautiful losers of the world will create something that inspires you or just make you smile for 2 seconds.”
