Roby Lazar practises what he preaches.

"After working on a series of images using a variety of kitchen appliances, I thought my photographic project was complete. However, like many tasks we undertake, I discovered that as one composition was completed, several new and divergent paths appeared, inviting further exploration.

"My kitchen series developed from looking at common appliances and converting their basic shapes into abstracts. By photographing and processing a jug or a coffee maker, for instance, I was able to understand and reinterpret the everyday in a completely different way. I could reconstruct the shape using different camera angles and cropping, or change the colour by taking the curve line in Photoshop to extreme limits.

"The next step in my photographic explorations was to introduce new and seemingly unrelated subjects. Mannequins discovered in the paintings of great artists such as Jeffery Smart and de Chirico; the colours of Matisse and the counterculture of the Dadaists. After journeying along this path, silent models decided to be bold and unconventional, joining with sculptural forms that I had photographed on a completely separate visit to Pompeii.

"And so a new series presented itself, with a background that was derived from the photographic reconstruction of kitchen appliances and major art movements from the past.
