SELECTED REVIEWS and ESSAYS

ABOUT THE ARTIST'S WORK

(NOTE: It is common that authors writing about an artist's work unilaterally employ variants of the artist's name, regardless of the correct name. Over time, numerous variants of Ranna's name have been employed by reviewers and arts writers: In particular, reviews, essays, and writings about Ranna's work prior to 1993 generally refer to her as Ranna or Ranna Hale. Subsequent articles after 1993, published and unpublished, refer to her as Ranna, Ranna Lachlan, Ranna-Lesley Lachlan, or Dr Ranna-Lesley Lachlan (PhD), or variants of these depending on authors' unilateral preferences.)

Paroissien, L. 1995, This artist "...has threaded together an extraordinarily diverse range of sources through which original study of cross-disciplinary and cross-cultural concerns is constructed. The references are wonderfully rich, and terrain across quite disparate specialisations is traversed with great attention to accuracy and detail. [The artist's] research and thought processes within the studio are fascinating." (Leon Paroissien, 1995. Former Director, Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney, Australia; Current Editor in Chief, Art & Culture, Sydney, Australia. Excerpt from Mr Paroissien's report on Lachlan's doctorate.)
