Through interventions and appropriations, Lara reveals artifices and constructions in romantic nature representations. Lara is interested in the discrepancy between the ways we are presented nature as a promise of adventure, of freedom, and how it feels to be immersed in such landscapes. Space is flooded and we are supplied a relief, a stage that stands in for real nature experience, sitting inside the picture and sculptural plane.    A repeated printing process allows durational engagement whilst also engaging in artifice and the mechanical. Commercialised, repeated and represented nature. Lara’s work straddles more than one context and the choice of handmade print sets a lot of her work in the realm of the trace which aligns it with the analogue, the photographic. Repetition is also inherent in the form of production and my work stands as a counterpoint.    Whilst exploring her own practice Lara also participates in various collaboratives that is at the core of what she does, a driving force. It is unity and it is exploring collaboration as a generative force. Alongside this developing an extensive photographic lens based practice for musicians, artists and creatives.
