Nancy Lasar's work is described as “drawing with light”, “condensed energy and flow”, “calm and crazy”, and “organized chaos”. The lines in Lasar’s works that are electrifying. They appear as singular electrical wires, jerking, swaying, whipping and buckling to some internal energy force that is as potent as it is erratic. For over 40 years, she has worked with images observed from nature using a variety of drawing, painting, printmaking and photographic processes.
Nancy Lasar has exhibited her award winning images widely throughout New England, New York, Minnesota and as far away as Sweden, China and Japan.
