Lara Lenhoff’s art isn’t necessarily narrative, instead her art pieces are individually each a variety of energies expressed through color palettes inspired by the music that she listens to while creating each one.
Each color represents an emotion, and the layers of color manipulated by the tools that she utilizes to reflect possibly the layers of her thoughts, both the conscious and subconscious.
Lara taught herself how to use palette knives and a variety of tools to develop her style that can be best described as abstract cityscapes and building structures.
One could say that they represent the psychological and architectural constructs of conflict within oneself. Again, the music she listens to definitely impacts and shapes the flow of each piece.
Lenhoff has been an artist all her life, not just on the visual platform.
She began playing the piano at 8 years old, and 30 years later, recorded an EP from money she made waitressing (circa 2004 at the age of 24) and has performed at a variety of festivals and non-profit benefits.
Lenhoff has worked with a variety of non-profit organizations to raise money for their causes, giving proceeds from each and every sale to assist them with their organization.
Lenhoff states; “Emotions run deeply within me, and I can’t imagine life without the ability to create something, whether it be from pain or joy.”
Additionally…she states; “If I can reach someone and make someone feel something, then I have done what I have intended to do, and I couldn’t ask for a greater purpose.”
