ABOUT LARA 

Currently residing in Brooklyn, her multidisciplinary practice spans across various mediums, including photography, video, performance, installation and writing. With a strong focus on conceptual photography, predominantly staged self-portraits, her work presents narratives that challenge the status quo of the quotidian, exposing layers of complexity seemingly invisible to the eye. Her language explores dichotomies of the optimistic and the cynical, the comedic and the pensive, the forbidden and the compliant, the absurd and the spiritual. Through her installations and performance works, she is able to engage with the audience herself, blurring the lines of the intimate and the public. During the pandemic she resorted to photography as a way to release her own uncertainties, fears and anxieties, resulting in an unprecedented public response as everyone could relate to these universal themes. Her art serves as a profound exploration of the female experience, critiquing societal expectations placed on women while also infusing elements of lightness, darkness, humor, and magical realism. She holds a Bachelor in Arts at Bard College and NYU, and a Master of Fine Arts from Bard College/ICP. Her accolades include prestigious awards like the Julia Margaret Cameron Gala Award and BIFA, recognizing her exceptional Self Portrait Series. She has exhibited her work nationally and internationally. She has worked with Nohra Haime (NYC, Chelsea), Art N Folly (Miami) and Tata Fernandez, among others. Beyond her artistic pursuits, she is a devoted mother of two.
