Mars Lasar's Angels of the Valley
Friday, April 19, 2013 from 7:00 PM to 9:30 PM
Born in Germany and raised in Sydney Australia, Mars is mostly known for his platinum award winning compositions in the music world www.marslasar.com. As a composer/keyboardist and producer, he has worked with many well known artists and to date has over 30 of his own solo albums. His tv/film music can be heard on CSI, America's Most Wanted, Medium, 24, MTV, American Idol, to name just a few. Mars started playing piano at 11 years old, and over a few years of extensive classical and jazz training, he rapidly became drawn to all kinds of music, He played covers and originals in many venues to gain experience, but composing his own style of music in the studio with cutting edge music technology was his passion.
Influenced by his mother, a classical artist, and her vast fine art book collection of modern and classical art. He started oil painting at the age of 14. Mars says 'Sci-fi was my topic, I just loved to paint whatever came to mind. I was the kid who sat in the back of the classroom drawing intricate lead pencil landscapes and sci-fi scenes. Mars explores his fine art photography skills using traditional photography and cutting edge computer technology. This requires equally specialized skills as a photographer and computer whiz. Mars says 'I have a good appreciation for light and art. I'm always happy if my image can capture a story, that's the goal".
After spending 20 years working in the music world in Hollywood, he moved to the Napa Valley in 2006. He had a passion for photography for many years but never perused it because of his busy music production schedule. When he moved to Napa he was taken
by the many different kinds of light and color changes in the vineyards. He has always been a Sunset Chaser. In Australia where he grew up he would do almost anything to get out there and watch the sunset develop, a genuine gift from above. Mars says “Shooting many variations of the colorful landscapes under the luminescence of the ever changing sky. During the vineyard transitions (particularly fall), it’s not unusual for me to be searching the valley with my tripod and camera looking for that perfect scene or vista”. His landscapes are hanging in various galleries and homes throughout the Napa Valley. Visit Mars’ Fine Art Photography catalog at http://www.picsfrommars.com
