Jason Lazarus: Gone
Exhibition: October 2, 2011 – January 22, 2012
Reception: Saturday, October 8, 2011, 7-9pm
Curator: Calvin Phelps
Jason Lazarus’ work address ways in which memory and memorialization are communicated through the photographic image. In his Heinecken Studies, Lazarus created a series of color photograms using a portion of the cremated remains of the late conceptual photographist Robert Heinecken. Produced in a single studio session, the works appear as constellations or color-field abstractions. Other works in the exhibit include a portraiture and images from Lazarus’ Orion over Baghdad series featuring photograms of the titles of snapshots posted on Flickr by US soldiers of their tours of duty in Iraq.
