Hang-Up Gallery are delighted to announce their up coming show You Blow My Mind by East London based multimedia artist Lauren Baker. The exhibition promises an intoxicating combination of neon lightning bolts, gold plated fingers, a 6ft infinity coffin and a pumping heart sculpture to name a few.
The show will take you on a journey through Lauren’s Enchanted Afterlife series of beautifully hand painted, embellished human skulls and antlers and then onto The Storm, an appreciation of science in the form of an incredible sound and light installation set up in room two of the gallery. The production will incorporate lightning bolts, smoke and crackling thunder. The artists recent work is heavily inspired by the incredible power of nature. She has creatively practiced with brand new materials to produce a show that will play with all of the senses and blow your mind.
Baker’s work explores the relationship between life, death and afterlife - inspired by time spent in the Peruvian Amazon and the Mexican Day of the Dead celebrations. By experimenting with different textures and colours such as neon and crystal, the artist aims to challenge the perception of her chosen objects. Each piece holds a unique spiritual power, creating an added depth. Lauren’s work is currently in high demand in all areas of the art world, having exhibited at the Tate Modern, Tate Britain, Ibiza and California.
