Lara Orman’s practice draws from an intuitive unfolding of images through mixed media, automatic drawing and lithography printmaking. She uses these materials with an intention to explore metaphysical issues and paradoxes. Archetypal experiences are drawn from her subconscious environment and translated through the metaphor of landscape. Orman’s artwork serves as a liminal space to explore the relationship between mind and matter.
