    • Krisztina Lazar is a painter of imaginary realism. She is a Mische Technique lineage holder, a mixture of oil and egg tempera painting revolutionized by modern master, Ernst Fuchs. This technique creates an opalescent under painting that the colors are then glazed over, rendering each painting out of light rather than shadow, bringing the images to life with fractal clarity.

      Her current body of work “Motherhood is Metal” explores the alchemically transformative elements of having a child, from the negredo of total dissolution, the albedo of Madonna-esque bliss to the rubedo of integration and wholeness. Using both a Mische of oil and egg tempera and direct Alla Prima techniques to render hyperealistic sacred art, Krisztina creates figurative and portrait paintings that exist in the vesica piscis of fantasy and visionary painting.

      Krisztina completed her BFA at Carnegie Mellon University in 2004 and her MFA graduate degree in 2011 at the San Francisco Art Institute New Genres department. Her paintings have been exhibited in group and solo shows throughout the United States and Europe, most notably at the H.R. Geiger museum in Gruyere, Switzerland. She teaches her unique styles of painting to many students in group and private settings. Her work has been featured in multiple articles, galleries and book publications. She currently lives and works in Northern California.
