INSTALLATION VIEWS:

Lara Meintjes


Lara Meintjes is a painter compelled to transform everyday subjects into painterly conversations in a vibrant, exuberant and joyful manner. Her floral works play with perspective in the spirit of the Fauvist painters; manipulating space through the use of elongated or flattened forms. Colour is used to define space and to communicate ideas in a distinctly maximalist fashion, where meaning resides in the instability of forms and the artistic process of creation itself.

Meintjes is a self-taught painter born in South Africa who currently lives in California where she is studying environmental anthropology with a focus on the ways in which culture, history and colonialism affect human engagement with place. Relationships, interactions, conversations, agreements and contracts are implied in her works through a focus on the objects people create. She considers these objects as avatars, using them to examine the relationship between humans and the natural world. Classical Greek urns, proteas, floral patterns and tigers frequently appear in her images. She favours the vibrancy and velvety quality of gouche paints, crayons, oil sticks and markers to execute her ideas.

Meintjes describes herself as someone compelled to paint. Her work has been shown in museums, homes, coffee shops and galleries all over the world.
