From 18th June – 1st August, The Cat Street Gallery in Hong Kong will hold an exhibition of Australian-born artist Lara Merrett’s  paintings, entitled In my nature

Merrett has worked specifically on these pieces for their debut in Hong Kong after previously holding a sold-out show at The Cat Street Gallery in 2012. The artist is well-known in her home country for her colour-rich paintings which seek to examine planes, space and atmosphere, and as a result, her works are represented in numerous public and private collections.

As an artist, she does not pre-plan her works saying, “It's like magic when the unexpected starts to happen. I love it – it's completely intoxicating. From start to completion, a work can take anywhere from three days to six months. Each work has its own personality and therefore takes its own time.”

This time around, her works play with elements such as pointillism and metallic paints, adding further layers to her abstract pieces. Merrett cites travels through Spain and India as a young artist as large influences on her arrangement of materials on the canvas.
