Moving Stills and Ethereal Transformations. Luca Lazar
Published by ERTI
The book is about Luca Lazar’s latest series Moving Stills created with unique and special technique. The series of colorful abstractions, which at first sight seem to be carrying an expressive vibration, offer an impressive sight. The rhythm and dynamics created by geometric shapes on the flat drawing surface, which vibrate in time and space, will open the doors of an optical illusory world. The artworks are inspired with visually orderly and consistent scenes that are brought together in Luca Lazar’s video work and carrying uncontrollable information and everlasting dynamics coming from this vibration and finally become obscure and undergo ethereal transformations.
The book includes Luca Lazar’s previous mix — media paintings, recent large-scale artworks and the video art.
