WELCOME

Julie Lazarus' most recent body of work includes oils on canvas and hand-blown glass vessels created during her recent visit to Venice. Julie Lazarus returned to Venice in July, marking her eighteenth year to work alongside master glassblowers on Murano, the small Venetian island recognized for its hand-blown glass. The glass studio is renowned for hand-blown creations that interpret the painter's vision, in this case Ms. Lazarus' vibrant paintings inspired by the light and the color of the landscape she experienced.

Although abstract, Julie Lazarus' paintings are based on her observations while in Venice. Her work is a melding of the color and texture, the elegance and the rutty edginess of this glorious European city. As colors dance upon the canvas, one visualizes changes in the light, while the overlapping shapes suggest the landscape or architecture. Mixed-media works by Ms. Lazarus often combine painting with intaglio or wood block printing on delicate rice paper. These works created on paper are often mounted on canvas or mahogany panels, adding a unique physical characteristic to her work.
