DescriptionCelebrate the Scents of Australia.
Each year through CREATIVE EXCHANGE, Sydney-based artist Lara Scolari invites a fellow creative to collaborate alongside her in her Balmain studio and home.
2022’s Creative Exchange is a celebration of the collaboration between Lara Scolari and Kim Harding of Plain & Simple Australia.
Combining Kim’s expertise with perfume and Lara’s rich exploration of Australia’s native landscape, together the two creatives designed a range of products that embody all the senses with sight, touch, sound, taste, and smell.
Lara Scolari’s large scale abstracted works titled ‘Scents of Australia’ were inspired by Kim’s Plain & Simple’s scents and ethos.
Through fusing Kim’s scents of plant extracts (essential oils) and Lara’s painterly interpretation of such scents, individuals can experience a multifaceted and sensory engagement with the scents of the environment around us.
