COMA is pleased to present an exhibition of new work by acclaimed Australian artist Lara Merrett, titled High-Rise. The presentation acts as both a follow up and response to Merrett’s participatory installation This Is Not A Love Song, featured as part of Sydney Contemporary 2017, which marked a dramatic change in Merrett’s practice. In This Is Not A Love Song Merrett allowed the viewer to interact with her physical interrogations into the relationship between painting and its surrounding architecture, resulting in a changed and manipulated work kept separate from the artists control. Through this new body of work with COMA the analysis and study of the audience reaction has resulted in a selection of large wall based pieces that continue to draw upon principles of abstraction and a colourist practice.
