About The Artwork

Delighted that this painting was shortlisted for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2017 “The Gingerbread House has four walls, a roof, a door, a window, and a chimney. It is decorated with many sweet culinary delights on the outside. But on the inside there is nothing—only the bare gingerbread walls. It is not a real house—not until you decide to add a Gingerbread Room. That’s when the stories can move in. They will stay in residence for as long as you abstain from taking the first gingerbread bite.” ― Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration Oil on Wood Panel Framed in black wooden box frame.

Biography Lara Cobden is a figurative painter living and working in Norfolk. Following a degree in Painting at the University of Brighton, Lara spent 11 years in Ireland before relocating to East Anglia. Her work has been exhibited in the UK and internationally. 'Focusing on memory and sense of place, the paintings are a subjective and individual response to the natural world around me, seeing the fantastical and magical in nature. I hope there is both a stillness and fluidity in my work; in the ordinary - a sense of reverence. Paintings evolved from remembered landscapes and casual snapshots, shimmer and shift in and out of focus, both misty and precise. This balance is also contained within the composition of a painting; presence and absence. The thread pulling this work together is about 'coming home', belonging; or conversely a sense of ' unbelonging'. '
