Jonathan Lasker in his studio in New York from Lars Bohman Gallery on Vimeo.
I won't say that the paintings of Jonathan Lasker are an acquired taste, it's just that they seem so simple, even cute at first. It takes a little while to fully appreciate what's happening on the canvas and in his head. If you'll watch the video, it's time well spent and you'll come to understand and appreciate his interesting and thoughtful oeuvre. Notice how even his small sketches are thoroughly well done and could be immediately framed for show.
He's well represented by several galleries and some Google Image Searching will show you the breadth of his career.
Please click on the Lars Bohman Link under the video to see works from the 80's which will just blow your mind.
