Lauren Baker is a British contemporary multidisciplinary artist who exhibits nationally and internationally. Her work explores the fragility of life, energy-fields, the after-life and other dimensions.
A truly inspiring artist that is taking the Art World by storm, she’s created installations at Tate Britain and The V&A, ran art workshops at Tate Modern and directed the windows of Selfridges and Harrods.
Baker is always working with innovative materials and pushing boundaries, renowned for her work using reflective materials– including the world’s first infinity mirror coffin at Tate Britain, a 7-ft mirrored geometric ‘Portal to another dimension’ commissioned by Clerkenwell Design Week, and 100 mirror eyes attached to 50ft trees in the forest at Unknown Festival, Croatia.
Inspired by mortality, her creations include painted and embellished human resin skulls, animal skulls and sculpted animal heads.
Recent works involving neon, infinity mirror and moving sculpture explore light, space and energy.
Baker’s most intricate work, which sold for £420,000 to an influential sheikh in Qatar, is a Steinway grand piano encrusted with half a million crystals (Feb 15).
