Fragile, opened last week in London and is showcasing some of Dan Baldwin’s newest works on canvas and ceramic. Working with collage and a range of mixed media, his eclectic style fuses images from childhood nostalgia, with the more sinister skulls, knives, razor blades and other memento mori. These elements, that have become characteristic in his work, come together in perfect harmony to create a sumptuous visual feast.
Dan Baldwin has recently been taken on by highly successful American music producer who is jettisoning Baldwin’s career to even dizzier heights following the success of managing global selling bands such as Green Day. Consequently the opening night of the show was littered with celebrities such as Holly Willloughby (who’s husband has the same name as the artist!), Frank Lampard and Christine Bleakley and proved to be a knockout success.
There are three stunning print releases following the show that are available at artrepublic from today, “Lost Souls I”, ”Lost Souls II” and “Faith Less” and there is also a book from the exhibition available, please call the Brighton gallery for details on +44 (0)1273 724829
