Richard Lazzara – metaCalligraphic
Tuesday, 18 March 2008
Calligraphy and Automatic Writing maybe distant relatives to computational processes, repetitive squiggles that are created by seismographic looping arcs of the human hand while the mind is else-if-then. Richard Lazzara has a splendid collection of calligraphic meta-doodles that have a touch of Pollock about them albeit monochrome with the sheen of a metallic background gradient. As If continuing the journey originally embarked upon by Bryon Gysin, his works rely on the illusion of secret alphabets, space-filling patterns and formation of random figures into recognisable forms a la Rorschach blots.
