Working as a non-representational painter in mixed media, Laks creates modular works, blasting with industrial grade tools onto birch panels.
Creating layer after layer, sanding in between each plane, resulting in large-scale and even colossal, highly theatrical works that are smooth, yet rich with depth. The marks spread across multiple panels, creating intimate moments of space and simultaneously, the magnanimous total experience of a galaxy. Laks’ works are part of numerous private collections and have shown internationally in galleries, public spaces, and private exhibitions.
For nearly 20 years, instruction has been an important part of ilan’s practice. ilan teaches students of any age, one on one, small and large groups, as well as in schools, camps, and communities.
