Exhibition of collaborative works by Alyssia Lazin & Pavel Kapic opens at Globe Fine Art
Earth Delights.

SANTA FE, NM.- Alyssia Lazin & Pavel Kapic, husband and wife, are featured artists for the month of July in a gallery collaboration between Edition ONE and Globe Fine Art. Lazin and Kapic have combined their art as photographer and painter to create a body of work entitled “Confluence”. This connecting of photography and painting is an evolution of their individual styles that ultimately results in a new artistic dimension. The result is a body of work that converges, meets and flows together - a labor of mutual respect and inspiration that yields new meaning to their art. 

On view are selected photographic works by Lazin complementing the couple’s “Confluence” series which embodies an interdisciplinary approach that shifts the traditional boundaries of the couple’s media. The writer Susan Sontag said “The painter constructs, the photographer discloses.” Lazin’s photographs, printed on canvas and paper are the inspiration and the initial imagery from which Kapic constructs his mixed media paintings.

Much like other couples who have been influenced and inspired by one another, (Christo and Jeanne Claude, Gilbert and George, Marina Abramovic and Ulay), Lazin & Kapic decided to work together while maintaining their autonomy. Both are creating their own art yet collaborating, giving each other the freedom to work on their own terms. 

About this collaboration, Kapic shares, “We select the subject that is conducive to my interpretation. It has to inspire and challenge me. I try to respond to the photograph’s emotional underpinnings, first expanding on its theme in the margins, always respecting its structure and color tonality. Later I start intruding on the picture itself, while upholding the original intent. Thus the final piece is an amalgamation of our styles while the integrity of both is preserved. Through this process both artistic signatures are maintained, yet a new unique original has been born.”

This connecting of photography and painting is a smooth and easy evolution of their individual styles that ultimately results in a new artistic dimension. The result is a body of work titled “Confluence" - converging, meeting, flowing together - a labor of mutual respect and inspiration that yields new meaning to their art. 

Selected photographs from three series’ of Lazin’s work: “Abstraction”, “Reflection” and “Unfolding” are included in the exhibition.

In “Abstraction”, Lazin explores a freedom from representational art - an approach to photography she studied at Yale. Abstraction uses the richness of form, texture, color and light - enticing one to pause, ponder,reflect and to contemplate. Lazin’s unique abstractions convey a compelling visual energy, transforming the ordinary into poetic painterly images. 

The “Reflection” series transforms images not as they appear but as they are felt and remembered. This painterly move enhances the formal approach. In reality, that which was in the background moves forward and the foreground becomes the backdrop. This is where a heightened sense of mystery begins.

“Unfolding" elevates the ordinary subject of textiles to a new and profound experience. Lazin shares,“Textiles surround our bodies and lives everyday. I have always had a love of textiles as they are part of our ‘woven life’. We begin life in a swaddling cloth and end in a shroud.” Lazin decided to take an abstract look at the subject matter from a new perspective. Textiles are taken out of context - revealing the new, interesting and unexpected. These images, taken in locations ranging from the costume department in film studios, museums, theaters, opera houses and ballet companies in seven different countries, take the ordinary and transform it into an extraordinary visual experience.

Lazin & Kapic have been exhibiting internationally over the past decades in galleries in the USA, Europe, South America and India.
