Sydney-based painter Lara Merrett creates large abstract works that engage with the process of painting and the very nature of paint itself. Alternately described as Gothic, science-fiction and Romantic, Merrett’s works are the outcome of chance, an intuitive approach to colour, the meditative nature of repetitive processes and a highly-personal responses to the events in her daily life. Merrett’s titles often suggest a sense of the wit and irony in the personal narratives that contribute to each work.
