Richard Tazzara works in media including paint, plaster, wood, acrylic, film, found object, aluminum, bronze, and acid, among others. But his foundational medium is natural form and elemental interaction. Molten zinc, plaster, or chemical solutions may be subjected to experimental techniques resulting in sculpted asteroids, or macro images of viruses — a formalized collaboration between Tazzara and the chaotic processes of nature. And while these works of captured ephemera indicate technical skill, it’s clearly evident in his work as a master woodworker and furniture maker with private and commercial clients around the country. He lives and works in Roxbury, NY.
