Larissa Bone's work is situation-based where she explores the connections that occur through the encounters of everyday experiences with broader social or ethical issues, whether of a personal or political nature, exploring the role of social pressure and expectations that obscure an understanding of personal notions of authenticity or truth.
Once Larissa establishes subject matter and material she proceeds towards making, trying to evoke unpredicted melancholy. By applying poetic and metaphorical language she creates tranquil compositions that balances on the edge of recognition and alienation.
At present she draws upon Hogarth's series of paintings Marriage á la Mode (1743-1745) and social comedy Abigail's Party (1977) in relation to an exploration of modern morals.
