Lazzari painted this series during the tumultuous last two years and the paintings are both drawn-from and other-than the world around us. The process-oriented mark making that is a hallmark of Lazzari’s work became a space she could step into and in turn to share with viewers.

Forged through Lazzari’s meticulous manipulation of paint, there is a buoyant freedom to the gestures that belies the careful thought that goes into each mark on the canvas. Although the paint is not thickly applied, there is a depth to the strokes, a texture that speaks to clouds, stormy skies, ripples of water, melting ice, and perhaps most importantly, the play of light.
