Pictured in happier days, the latest actress Sharon Tate is the subject in many of the featured paintings by Lazzarini, which combine optical patterning with appropriated media images of the actress.
The effect is both visually compelling and confusing. The images aren’t static, but dynamic, almost vibrating with movement. The subject’s expression and posture seem to change slightly the longer you look. For the viewer, admiring these seemingly moving images of such a glamorous woman—knowing, as we do, her tragic fate—is a strange, sad experience. Encountering Lazzarini’s recent depictions of Tate, you can’t help but think about the limitations of perception and the fact that you can’t always trust your own eye. ARTSY

Artist Certificate: Each puzzle comes with an artist certificate.
Primarily a sculptor, Lazzarini is best known for making common objects that have been subjected to compound distortions which have the effect of confusing visual and haptic space, or rather complicating the space of pictures and the space of things. Lazzarini also alters the physical spaces in which these objects are seen—the "ground" to the object's "figure"—which adds to the "disorienting"effect that the work exerts on its audience. Offering no ideal point of view and so compelling its viewers to walk around the work, Lazzarini's sculptures trace their lineage back to the 1960s, minimalism and to the introduction of phenomenology into the discourse of art. Additionally, all of Lazzarini's sculptures are created out of the same materials as the things on which they are based; for example, the skulls (2001), which Lazzarini first exhibited at the Whitney Museum of American Art, were created out of cast bone.
Lazzarini has been exhibited nationally and internationally since 1995 and are included in major collections such as the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, D.C.; the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, Richmond; the Newark Museum, Newark; and The Toledo Art Museum; Toledo. The artist was the Knight Alumni Artist in Residence at The McColl Center, Charlotte in 2015 and has forthcoming exhibitions at the Mint Museum, Charlotte and the USF Contemporary Art Museum, Tampa. He received a BFA from the School of Visual Arts, NY in 1990, and continues to live and work in New York City.
