Part of The Artist's Life series

Ian Lazarus, a Toronto artist, started his career carving soapstone in the early 70s. As a young artist he travelled extensively, learning to carve marble in Mexico, stone in Greece and other materials in California, Italy and Canada.

He discusses his decision to move away from sculpture into more large-scale work-including a Land art project with artist Badanna Zack called Serpentine Mounds, a 300-foot-long installation at the Toronto Zoo composed of obsolete cars, earth and ground cover. Much of his current work involves taking the remnants of technology and burying them as though they were overgrown by time. On site at Serpentine Mounds and at Pop Can Corridor, another co-creation with Zack, he explains the political statements he's making with his "future fossils."
