LARA MERRETT | INVADERS
4 - 28 April
Lara Merrett's exhibtion of recent abstract paintings opens tomorrow from 11am at Blockprojects in Richmond.
Lara Merrett’s organic abstract paintings will include a range of geometric elements in this new body of work. Invading hard edge shapes and forms derived from objects collected by the artist in her studio, are integrated and contrasted against her free-floating compositions that spill across the painting surface to create a three-dimensional feel. These surfaces present a combination of gloss and matt finishes and are offset by areas of curious and intricate detailing.
Merrett’s layered painting process and technique breaks down original source imagery such as text to present an engulfing visual experience. Her adventurous choice of palette in these new works range from metallic pinks, fluorescent yellows, earthy red ochres and aquamarine blues and greens.
