Lara de Moor – Still Point
|Author||Lara de Moor; Jurriaan Benschop|
Lara de Moor makes paintings of places with a testimonial value. They are places where she has lived or visited. In these spaces she builds still lifes that sometimes border on installations, but can also be limited to a single comment. Her paintings often show situations in which emptiness and absence are palpable. Little happens, yet there are objects and markers that seem to have a tension or hidden purpose. Geometry as a rudiment and translation of the human understanding of the world has come to the fore in her recent work. Issues arise such as: where are the limits of my being? How can a space influence feelings and thoughts and how do they affect a space?
