Large-format paintings, the canvases of the Marines series are a parenthesis in Blois' work, which gladly tackles the theme of landscape, echoing 19th century German Romanticism, in a modern and purified vision of form, isolated, with shades of white and grey colour. Inspired by the notion of Sublime developed by Kant in the 18th century ("which exceeds all measure of the senses"), the artist paints a landscape that is both wild and saturated with light, sometimes inhabited by austere and threatening forms.

Art is limited, according to the philosopher, to express the supra-sensible, to reveal the infinite. However, it allows, perhaps, to be the gateway to think about this infinity. Immense waves, nuclear submarines and ethereal mists evolve in the canvases of Blois, which poetically questions Man's relationship to nature, his hubris and his finitude in the face of the infinite forces that govern him.

Please note: As the work is not currently in the artist's studio, it can only be shipped from July, thank you for your understanding.

Lara Blois grew up in Toulouse, in the south of France. At the age of 19 she started studying arts at the Jean Jaurès University in Toulouse, where she obtained her Master's degree in 2015.

In 2017, she begins a pictorial work that is characterized by misty and ethereal atmospheres as well as by incisive and moving forms. The artist's approach takes the form of a poetic questioning of the inner landscape and the relationship between reality and virtuality:

"Contemporary art is full of transversality. Today the links are constantly being woven between the real and the virtual. It is interesting to work the traditional pictorial medium in parallel with modern digital tools".

The artist's universe is thus a mixture of images collected on the canvas, dreamlike scenes, watery landscapes and enigmatic monuments.

Attracted by wide open spaces and activities immersed in nature, Lara Blois' technique, nourished by the German Romantics and the Flemish tradition of the 17th century, reveals subtle nuances thanks to a work of coloured greys and a saturated printing, which gives white its variations, through the play of transparencies and glazes.
