A tangle of blooms, a snippet of blue sky, a shard of strong sunlight or the brief relationship between a favourite mug and a collection of fresh garden pickings.
Botanical nature is the language in Lara's work. Used as a metaphor for the passing of time these forms also serve to enable and investigation of personal experiences.
Lara plays with colour, composition, media and marks to spark a recall or sensation in the viewer. Joy, contemplation and melancholy are present in these paintings bringing to the viewer the comfort of memories.
