DESCRIPTION

From depictions of himself sliding nude into a hotel pool, to the pastoral scenes of his grandmother’s wallpaper, the loose cohesion of Jason Lazarus’s series 2004-Present is atypically broad and ranging. The aberration is fitting for an approach that proves consistently dubious of the art world and its workings.

Some of the pictures reference particular artists (alluding to the myth and mystery surrounding Bas Jan Ader, for instance) and some poke fun at art galleries and museums, while still others mix the personal with the performative as Lazarus considers from many angles just what it means to make art or be an artist.
