Lazarus makes works in mixed media: panels of paint, wood, glass, adhesive lettering, and, in some cases, plastic reflectors and other found materials culled from the artist's everyday surroundings. "Each work presents itself as a possible painting, sculpture, portrait, mirror, sign, grave marker."
