Rick Lazes

 

Tactile and dynamic, Richard lazes’ bent wood sculptures invite the viewer to circle, observe, puzzle, and touch. Lazes uses steam to coax rich and gorgeous wood into springing curls and languid swoops. By pulling forms from delicate and minute sources, such as calligraphic pen marks, or the push of wind through blades of grass, and bringing them up to human scale, Lazes accesses the energy inherent in these easily overlooked sources of beauty.
