Lara Accarias

Brisbane

I work with acrylic paints that I pour over a flat canvas. The technique has to do with using different paint consistencies, and figuring out the angles necessary to get the mass of paint to go where I want it to go. The timing throughout the process is crucial, if I get it wrong the entire painting changes. If I do it properly I get to watch beautiful details come out, and I think that some of the paintings actually look better close up. It's messy, fun and I love it!

About Lara Accarias

I was born in Adelaide, and raised in British Columbia, Canada. My professional background is in Hospital Social Work/Counselling specialising in Maternity and Orthopaedics. I decided to move back to Australia over 11 years ago and chose Brisbane, and it was the best decision I have made. Painting helps me to cope with my lovely, crazy 6 and 7 year old son and daughter who keep our house loud and chaotic. The type of art I do is extremely messy because I use a serious amount of paint, so I try my best to keep it confined to the studio, but it always seems to migrate out and get on everything! The artworks are really fun to do, but because I use such a large amount of paint they require a lot of focus and timing, if angled poorly things can go very wrong in seconds. The painting can't be left for any length of time once I start because the colours can run together, and each piece can take anywhere between 6 to 10 hours to complete, and need to be checked on for a few more. If timed properly I love to watch the gorgeous details emerge, it's my favourite part of the process. I include close up photos, but the paintings look much better in person where the details can be seen properly.
