Trained as a painter and a sculptor Nicola fashions unusual narrative sculptures of a rare complexity and beauty. He incorporates self-portraits in many of the works, which have something of a renaissance quality to them, yet borrow also from Giacometti and other modern masters. Charming, intriguing, witty and exquisitely sculpted his bronzes have a keen international following. His “Boatman” fetched a record price at the Keeneland auction in Kentucky in 2014. Nicola Lazzari ‘s bronzes display the possibility that they might have been discovered rather than made, a vestige of some now lost world in which their exact meaning was clear.
