Lazarus makes works in mixed media: panels of paint, wood, glass, adhesive lettering, and, in some cases, plastic reflectors and other found materials culled from the artist's everyday surroundings. "Each work presents itself as a possible painting, sculpture, portrait, mirror, sign, grave marker."
Holding Contemporary just closed his solo exhibition, and he has had solo exhibitions at Walter Galleries at San Francisco Art Institute, Fairbanks Gallery at Oregon State University in Corvalis, Feature Inc in New York, and ANP in Antwerp, among others.
