British artist Lórien Haynes’s art show, UNBAREABLE, opened at The Art Studio in Santa Monica from March 5th – 26th 2011.
Lórien charcoals have been exhibited in London at Sophie Thompson’s gallery Fish, The Haymarket, and The Saatchi Gallery, as well as a prospective figurative exhibition at Eleven in Belgravia. She has a current installation of work at Breedlove Pilates, 1644 Abbot Kinney Blvd, 90291. She studied under Royal Academy of Art tutor Dilip Ur from 2002. And after moving to Los Angeles in 2009, continued her work with painter and sculptor George Small, the curator of her show, UNBAREABLE.
Known primarily for her oversize charcoal nudes - which she integrates with block acrylic; Lorien’s work combines a traditional figurative aesthetic with a sculpted, three-dimensional sexuality. She constantly expands upon the physical act of drawing by adding paper to each piece in order to build an organic product: Each being an improvisational act. Each having a life of its own and the ability to grow in any aesthetic direction chosen. [Taped together the buyer can also alter how the sections of the body are put together.]
Lorien’s ability to make her subjects real, tactile, visceral, interactive has secured her a client base that ranges from corporate to celebrity and she is now collected internationally.
Patrons include: Emma Thompson, John Hannah, John Slattery, Janet McTeer, Kim Raver, Tate Donovan, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Tara Summers, Jon Avnet and Bill Haber.
