As an immigrant from the Philippines, John Lanzador is always seeking a different approach to western art. Growing up on the outskirts of Manila, he was surrounded by wooden handicrafts by local artisans. The carvings in this exhibit bridge the many disciplines that he has studied. Disciplines like woodcarving, printmaking and painting have been part of the artist’s work for over 30 years. The images are of Asian animals that John feels represent parts of his personality.
