Kathleen Laziza
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Boerum Hill



ARTIST STATEMENT: Artists aspire. Throughout my career I blended genres to create a signature look that was very personal. This blending includes many different disciplines. I am an industrial strength artist because, I am a visual artist who choreographed and a choreographer who made media installations; a media installation builder who edits video, makes websites and writes books. Instead of utilizing ready-made video image processing tools, I went the other direction by building my own tools and low-tech special effect instruments to alter moving images in a real-time environment during my time directing my dance company: The Laziza Electrique Dance Company in a series of non-linear narrative videodances available at the Micro Museum channel on Vimeo. When I retired my dance company, I resumed drawing, painting, and collage making as I had pursued as a young adult. My paintings reflect dance and movement precisely but the bulk of my visual art highlights my role as colorist. My drawings are cartoon-like and humorous in nature. I view my drawings, as a kind of penmanship that I’ve cultivated throughout various episodes of my life, like a timeline. Over time I became a pioneer with a long history of collaboration and cultural advocacy through my efforts with Micro Museum®, an off the radar distance learning center in Downtown Brooklyn. The history of the museum has legendary value. Hundreds of artists presented or displayed their works at the grassroots gallery 1986- 2014 and thousands of youngsters trained at the location. The many collaborations nurtured embrace all forms of performance art, visual art, media display with a continuous focus on community development. In addition, after years of training teens in first job experience. I published a TEEN GUIDE TO PARENTS – How to Manipulate Without Them Knowing on Amazon or Kindle.
