Robert Lazzarini

Robert Lazzarini is known for confusing visual and haptic space, or rather complicating the space of pictures and the space of things. Based on appropriated subjects, his paintings and sculptures have the effect of interrupting one’s standard or habituated processes of visual recognition. His work continues the discourse of phenomenology in art and traces its lineage back to the American Minimalists. Lazzarini’s work touches on themes ranging from memory to optics to the mythology of violence in American culture.

Lazzarini is featured in collections at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington DC, the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, Richmond, Viriginia, the Newark Museum. Newark, New Jersey, and the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, Minnesota among others. He received a BFA from the School of Visual Arts in 1990 and continues to live and work in New York City.
