In her body of work, the artist Lara Felipe uses different materials to enrich her repertory of images, incorporating personal and symbolic motifs, excerpts from poems, literature, references from other artists. Lara hides icons and under-the-skin secrets in the form of enigmas and messages, provoking an emotional and psychological response from the viewer.

Gleaned from the universe of art and transformed into a particular artistic language, Lara explores different media such as video, installation, photography, object, assemblage, painting and drawing. From the dialogue between the memory of her roots (she comes from a family of immigrants) and recent cultural exchanges, Lara puts together those works in order to provoke the creation of new meanings, dealing with poetic, aesthetic issues of a symbolic nature, capable of weaving a network of identity, bringing her universe closer to the spectator’s. Lara’s work pulses with life and bodily experience.
