RICK LAZES 2016 PAPER DOLLS

Opening reception October 1st 2016

SATURDAY 6-9 PM

Rick Lazes’ vibrant, sensuous sculptures are manifestations of his passion for shapes and contours found in nature. Lazes’ art evolves around the human figure even when it is in an abstract form. During the creation of “Paper Dolls”, the artist developed a proprietary process that starts with hand drawings that are laminated onto acrylic panels, then over painted and heated in a giant oven and bent into the female form using forms and insulated gloves.

“Paper Dolls” melds a nostalgic theme with contemporary couture fashion. These exquisite acrylic figures inspire viewers to explore the wonder of imagination and the complexities of beauty inherent in every woman.

Lazes has always enjoyed working with his hands and earned his living as a carpenter early in his career. The artist works in various mediums including wood, plaster, aluminum, steel and Plexiglas. The commonality of his work is the fluid nature of his subjects which are both natural and sensuous and largely influenced by the female form.
