Lara Kruger assumes the multiple and shifting positions of researcher, artist, designer and educator through her work. This includes abstract drawings and paintings in combinations of ink, charcoal, watercolour, graphite and pastel, though the media she chooses are concept and context dependent. Kruger has also worked extensively with non-traditional media, from ash, waste materials and plastic bags to worn-out soccer balls.
