Through an exploration of drawing and painting practices, Larissa expands on themes surrounding unconsciousness as a vessel for the duality between human fantasy and reality, between base desire and rebellion. She creates hybrid creatures combined with botanicals and other natural elements that appear to be in a metamorphic state, they act as a decaying organism stagnant in time. By referencing mythology, she constructs an alternate realm ruled by mortality, ambiguity, and femininity.
