Jason Lazarus is an artist exploring vision and visibility. His work includes a range of fluid methodologies: found and appropriated images, text-as-image, animated GIFs, photo-based sculptures, pigment-inks-as-image, live archives, and public submission repositories among others. This expanded photographic practice seeks new approaches of inquiry, embodiment, and bearing witness.
Lazarus also organizes PDF-OBJECTS, an itinerant sculpture/text repository; Coco Hunday, an alternative exhibition space in Tampa, FL; and is Co-Founder of Chicago Artist Writers, a platform that invites artists and art workers to write traditional and experimental criticism with a focus on under-represented arts programming in Chicago. Currently, he is an Assistant Professor of Art and Art History at the University of South Florida.
