Our third and final artwork as part of the Crown x Kinetica series is by Lauren Baker, a self taught multidisciplinary artist working with light, lithography and mixed materials.
Materials: Mixed media (neon metals)
‘Transcending’, was dreamt up while the artist was meditating. She says: ‘When we are aligned with our inner self we can link with higher energy sources, and the lens or eye for creativity expands'. 'Transcending' represents that moment of connection and the new ideas that flow from this higher state.
Lauren Baker is a British contemporary multidisciplinary artist who exhibits internationally. Her work explores the fragility of life, energy-fields, the after-life and other dimensions. She has created installations at The V&A and Tate Britain; recent works involve neon, infinity mirror and moving sculpture. Passionate about animals and conservation, Lauren is an ambassador for Save Wild Tigers.
We are also thrilled to have on display two of Lauren's framed crystal works which communicate the positivity of connection and the universe.
All of the works are available to purchase and you can explore more of Lauren's art on her instagram @laurenbakerart and website http://www.laurenbakerart.com/
For the past decade the former Kinetica Museum and subsequent Kinetica Art Fair have received both critical and popular acclaim for their dynamic and engaging curated exhibitions, exhibitor installations and innovative events programmes. Both have popularised and supported the development of artists who are leading the way forward into new artistic domains. Many of the artists shown through Kinetica have gained international success, with their work commissioned & collected extensively.
Since its first exhibition launched to critical acclaim at Spitalfields Market ten years ago, Kinetica has become a leading international platform for innovative artists experimenting with new media.
Their recent anniversary exhibition featured over 50 performative and immersive artworks that challenged perceptions to question what is real, perceived or imagined.
