Published on the occasion of Lasker's first solo exhibition with Greene Naftali, this fully illustrated catalog documents a focused survey centered on the artist's use of line over nearly four decades. A newly commissioned essay by art historian Erin Kimmel situates Lasker within a fresh set of discourses—from the Pattern & Decoration movement to Atari graphics to Gyorgy Kepes’s theory of “pattern seeing”—and explores how his “bold, balmy, and willfully strange paintings…keep the eye moving and the mind at work.”
