Known primarily for his photographic works, Lazarus has in recent years expanded his artistic scope, conflating the role of the artist with that of collector, archivist, and curator. Above all, Lazarus is a sign-maker—sometimes literally, sometimes metaphorically—creating works that simultaneously direct attention inward, toward the personal, and outward, toward the historical. This dual provocation highlights the referential nature of Lazarus’s practice, with the artist inviting us to revel, scrutinize, imagine, and wonder along with him.

PLEASE NOTE: BID INCREMENT IS $20 FOR ALL ARTWORKS LISTED ON THIS WEBSITE. YOU MUST BID $20 MORE THAN THE CURRENT BID PRICE IN ORDER TO BECOME THE HIGHEST BIDDER.
