Robert Lazzarini’s sculptures are at once rigorously formal and intensely expressive. As distorted versions of familiar objects, they appear in the process of slipping- from three to two dimensions, from realism to abstraction, from this world to the next. Products of a dense and innovative process, his works seem both real and unreal: their striking immediacy is belied by a quality of ghostliness, as if they were hardly there at all.- John B. Ravenal, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, VMFA, 2004.

Deitch Projects is pleased to announce an exhibition of Robert Lazzarini's, Drawings, at our 76 Grand St. location, April 6 - April 29, 2006. This presentation of drawings at Deitch Projects is an expanded version of Untitled -- Robert Lazzarini Works on Paper held at Davidson College earlier this spring. An accompanying catalog for that show includes a conversation between Lazzarini and Chuck Close. A solo exhibition of Lazzarini’s sculpture is currently on view through July 16, 2006 at the Mint Museum of Art in Charlotte, NC, featuring a full-color catalogue with essays by Carla Hanzal, Joanna Marsh and Ian Berry.
