Larsen’s oil paintings merge pixilated neo-impressionism with the idea of textile weaving. The paintings are beautifully simple and concurrently complex. By employing blocks of colour mixed with luminous gradation, the paint underpins the canvas in intricate weave. Rich, bright and intense colours demand the attention of the viewer, drawing them into the optical illusion of the painted knit.
