Lara Viana

July 16, 2011

The painter Lara Viana is a new and exciting discovery for me. Instantly appealing painterly thin brush strokes she incorporates in each canvas seem to strangely melt into one another, while at the same time display a mysterious depth. She has clearly found an alchemy for herself which opens up a freedom to execute the painting of objects without a hint of realism. Viana seems to have the very enviable position of making small works which draw you in and look as if they are made loosely and quickly.. not unlike a masters oil sketch.

Lara Viana was born in  Brazil. She studied at the Royal College of Art, London. She has taken part in numerous prestigious exhibitions and publications.

      Two routes.. one through web (also noticed Whitechapel London has shown her when I was doing that talk in May), and the other through Permanent gallery I was in moderate contact with in Brighton (made me like the gallery more seeing such strong work).. more artists to be featured to introduce you to on this blog from here on- including submissions to show and describe artists works.. in progress or finished.
