Wrestlers, vampires, erotica, clowns and imaginary figures; these are the images that infiltrate Adrian Lazzaro’s thoughts and practice. Oscillating between chimera, desire and reality, Lazzaro works across drawing, painting, digital art and soft sculpture. By persistently pursuing darkness and disturbance in his work – both psychologically and physically – Lazzaro’s imagery carries sinister interpretations with a quirky humour and wry outlook. Sometimes drawing can be dark and disturbed is Lazzaro’s first solo show at Arts Project Australia.
Lazzaro has exhibited in group shows both nationally and internationally including Spring 1883, Sydney (2017); Turning the Page, Gallery 101, Ottawa, Canada (2014); and My Puppet, My Secret Self, The Substation, Newport.
Coinciding with this exhibition is the group show Under Pressure, which explores the printmaking process of Arts Project studio artists.
