Lara Merrett’s amorphic and imaginative paintings convey a dynamic energy through their vibrancy. The work can be viewed as explorations into the abstract, but also the figurative at times. Seductive smooth surfaces and washes of colour dominate the sophisticated compositions. The viewer is presented with a multi-layered organic visual experience. Recently Merrett has employed discrete areas of pointillist detailing and metallic paints that add curiousity and depth to the paintings.
