Daniel Laskarin is a sculptor and educator working out of Victoria BC. After a career as a helicopter pilot/engineer, Laskarin turned to fine art, completing an MFA at UCLA in 1991. His work reflects his experiences in the aviation industry: combining industrial forms with elements of minimalist sculpture, material exploration and the lyrical sensibility of visual metaphor. Laskarin describes his work as means for thinking through the world, a process by which he might give sensory experience to consciousness. Objects and materials, combined and manipulated, form things that find their own order in a condition of disorder and yet refuse that which orders everything. Independent materials congeal to create an interdependent network, resulting in unique forms that generate a complex and shifting subjective experience.
Laskarin's diverse media incorporates photography and video, optics, robotics systems, installation and sound. He has been involved with set design, public image projections and large-scale public commissions in Vancouver and Seattle. He has exhibited in Canada and internationally, and teaches at the Department of Visual Arts at the University of Victoria in Western Canada.
