Luka Lasareishvili/Luca Lazar is an independent professional artist who has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions in galleries and museums since 1982. He works in a variety of media: painting, installations, objects, and video art. Lazar spent 1989 as an artist-in-residence at the Museum Fridericianum in Kassel, Germany. He has lived and worked in Cologne, Germany, and since 2003, in New York, USA. By the late 1990s, Lazar started to concentrate mainly on geometrical art, which was followed by minimalistic abstract explorations, resulting in a series titled “The White Curtain” and a series titled “One-liners”. From this point on, Lazar started to develop his own style, based on minimalistic abstract art, geometric art, and optical art and containing important undertones of expressionist art, which resulted in works that are unlike any existing art direction or style. These works provide a sensation of continuous flowing movement in space, hence their title “Moving Stills”. Luca Lazar’s exhibitions are held in many cities around the world: Moscow, Paris, Basel, Hamburg, Munich, Kassel, Kiel, Warsaw, Berlin, Dallas, New York, etc.
