Original inspiration: Parmigianino - Madonna with the long neck c 1535-1540
Krisztina Lazar is a painter of imaginary realism. 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.
