Welcome to the online home of Seattle artist and architect Jay Lazerwitz.

Updates listed in the following columns will direct you to entries on our blog for more information.


Jay works in a medium called encaustic, which allows the application of translucent and opaque layers to be interlaced.

This process is both additive and subtractive, complementing the exploration of various thematic constructs. The fluid nature of the encaustic process lends itself to the exploration of these forms and patterns, which interlace structured and unstructured shapes, as well as colors, to form a shared surface layer. The latest work closely references urban patterning, architectural manifestations, and imagined spaces.
