Artist Bio

Lara Scarr was born in Alberta but has spent the majority of her life in beautiful coastal British Columbia. Recently she graduated holding a Bachelor of Arts in visual art and psychology, each of which spur her creative will…pushing towards two different ideals of a celebrated aesthetic. That struggle is the well from which she draws inspiration.

Lara is currently working on the Thread&Paint Revolution series, an exploration of complimentary and contrasting media; it draws attention to the contradicting effect of soothing traditional textiles, cut forms, and unsettling figurative images, reticulated within a labyrinth of thread and paint…

Artist Statement

This series is a playful exploration of media, specifically media that tends to be classically stereotyped and therefore confined within creative possibility and audience type. I am attempting to break those boundaries and illustrate the potential deviant nature of fabric art; it can be edgy and strange, even alarming. And now I’m watching it carve and anomalous pathway into the art world.

    I like your fresh approach to using fabric to express your self. Edgy, alarming and great. You go girl!
