Fine Art by Dara Larson

I have always been fascinated with travel, language and inter-cultural aesthetics. My most recent work fuses research completed during travel with global art and craft traditions, mixed media and pop culture information. I am combining materials such as photographs of ancient landmarks, handmade paper, found objects, movie and advertising references into forms which have bookish or kinesthetic potential. Historic factual accounts and fictional characters or events evolve within this setting to explore the myriad of meanings associated with defining contemporary identity.
