Colours Within Nature / Lara Robinson
Lara Robinson is a contemporary fine art painter, based in London, from Wiltshire, England.
Having studied the traditional method of painting in both Florence and Barcelona, Lara graduated from The Barcelona Academy of Art in 2019. Here she explored still life, landscape, figurative and portraiture painting. This method of education, providing a foundation of deep knowledge and applied practice of essential principles handed down from the past, has imbued a confidence in her work. From here, she has developed her particular mode of expression, combining her own style with her academic training.
Having moved to London in May 2019, Lara’s current practice is centred on developing other techniques and moving into the contemporary art world. She is particularly interested in researching Impressionism, exploring its principles of concept, composition and colour. She says of her approach “It’s all about playing to get the best result”. Producing work that is well-considered, taking decisions on representation, and finding the most interesting way to reflect her chosen subject matter is key to Lara’s practice.
“A challenge that many painters face is the ability to carry the image to a point where there is still space for the viewer to define the image in their imagination. My ambition is for my work to focus on this idea, allowing me to apply my skills and knowledge about painting in a more expressive and conceptual way. Whether it is painting a scene, landscape, still life or portrait, I aim for an approach that attempts to convey a sense of life, vibrancy, and the essence of the subject.”
