Installation view: Robert Lazzarini, Rated R for violence
Robert Lazzarini (b. Denville, NJ, 1965) lives and works in New York, NY. Lazzarini uses the language of mathematical distortion as a way to question the habitual way we view images and objects. His work often employs the formal strategy of variation and repetition as a foil to the static nature of painting and sculpture. The artist’s themes include societal malaise and America’s preoccupation with violence and criminality.

Robert Lazzarini has exhibited internationally with galleries including Deitch Projects, New York, NY; Dittrich Schlechtriem, Berlin, Germany; Honor Fraser, Los Angeles, CA; Paul Kasmin Gallery, New York, NY; and Marlborough Chelsea, New York, NY. His works are included in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, NY; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, MN; and The Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, DC amongst many others. Lazzarini’s exhibitions have been reviewed and discussed in numerous publications such as The New York Times, The Brooklyn Rail, Frieze, and Art in America.
