Evocative of societies cultural rhythms, Larisse abstracts the language of relationship; embodying us gregariously as a society while exploring the more intimate states of innocent child friendship and personal connections. Although deceptively simple, there is a restlessness and subtle tension within her work that draws and holds the viewer. The application of paint itself further extends the idea of anthropomorphic resonance in its subtle almost brushed out gesture - brushed on layer by layer, the mark of the hand always evident, but so unobtrusive that it is subsumed into the viewer's consciousness. This is the essence of her work. Working the painted mark against the voluptuous sensuality of the shaped form she brings the canvas to life in her search for balance and harmony.
Larisse is confidently extending her process to include both sculpture and light... exciting times indeed. Creating time transformative works of art.....larissehallartist.com

NOCTURNE - a collaborative project with artist Lori Davis celebrating NZ's Nocturnal Native's. This installation highlights the role of the Brook Waimarama Sanctuary and the 'fence of protection' . Involving community - from our art class students through to school groups and the public (with the support of Office Max Nelson who have made kits available to the community). This installation has been created using glow in the dark materials and black light. Thanks also goes to Resene Paints who have provided Glow in the Dark Paint for this project. Thanks also goes to the Brook Waimarama Sanctuary and Grant Palliser (Nelson Girls College) and to everybody who has contributed!!!
