Lara’s practice stretches all the way across printmaking, woodcuts, video, stop-motion animation and writing, and with such a broad spectrum under her belt she has plenty to inform what has become a very refined aesthetic. With a range of colours that practically oozes her native California – tanned limbs, blue skies and sunshine yellow houses? Yes please! – and a first-rate grasp of composition, her work is suuuuuper nice.
We’re especially excited about her papercuts; empty spaces and carefully rendered tiny detail work together harmoniously to create quietly funny images, with whole visual narratives transcending their medium to tell stories. Lara’s not afriad of their fragility, either; watch police cars crumple and airplanes fall to pieces as she plays with the temporary nature of the pieces she creates. Lovely stuff!
