Drawing from a
personal vocabulary of visual symbols and mythology, Lawrence Berzon creates
modern social allegories that not only reflect on the human condition but
also juxtapose it with the scientifically fantastical and unreal. His
intriguing work manages to be both broadly universal and highly specific.
Lawrence Berzon has been
working professionally as a painter, sculptor and illustrator for thirty
years. He studied at Rhode Island School of Design and San Francisco Art
installations and commissions of his can be found in private homes as well
as shops, offices and restaurants around the United States. In addition to
Limner Gallery, Berzon has exhibited his work in New York City, Tokyo, Los
Angles, Minneapolis and Boston.
Articles and reviews of Berzon's work have appeared in Art in America,
Art and Auction, NY Arts and the LA Times. His illustrations have
accompanied articles in the New York Times Op Ed and Review of Books,
Menninger Perspective, and a variety of book covers and interiors.
Berzon's most recent oil on panel works from his "a Compulsion for
Beauty" series address the issue of our culture’s unhealthy obsession with
