Lara Davies lives and works in Cardiff. She is one of the co-founders of LLE gallery. The starting point for Lara's painting is a digital image. This may be a photograph, an image from social media or a film still. Lara then makes numerous studies of the same or similar image, where the photographic image is gradually disregarded and the paintings become about pattern and tone.
Selected recent exhibitions include Small World, PS Mirabel, Manchester; The Reading Room, Rokeby Gallery, London ; City Limits, Oriel Canfas, Cardiff; Beep Wales International Painting Prize, Swansea College of Art and Undegun Wrexham. It has just been announced that Lara will also be taking part in this year's National Eisteddford in Wales.
