76 Grand Street, New York
Deitch Projects is pleased to present an exhibition of work by Robert Lazzarini, featuring drawings on paper and canted panels as well as a two-part wall drawing. These new works build on Lazzarini?s existing vocabulary of compound planar and sine wave distortion with increasing complexity. Incorporating convoluted structure and an insistent physicality, his work addresses phenomenology, spatial disorientation, perception, and new types of vision.
In the main gallery, a series of drawings on large wood panels are hung at oblique angles from the wall, heightening the viewer?s physical relationship to them and the surrounding space. A large wall mural is executed in two parts so that it lies both inside and outside of the gallery. Viewing the elements simultaneously visually collapses the space between the two. In the front gallery, smaller drawings on paper present a variety of manipulated forms in graphite, chalk and ink wash.
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.
