Be prepared to get into the true festive spirit of Christmas as Laura I. Gallery is thrilled to announce its first group exhibition, “Codes of Faith.” Opening on the 10th of December 2016, it is a captivating experience for everyone this winter.
Curated by Laura Iosifescu “Codes of Faith” is a group exhibition displaying artwork on the theme of faith from over 30 of the most exciting contemporary artists right now to rejoice in diversity and celebrate peace and hope. The artists aim to inspire in you a new deeper understanding and closeness to the spiritual essence of yourself. It will awake a yearning within you to discover more. This exhibition will not only change people’s perceptions, but it will also offer up the most intriguing and cutting edge exhibition that you can visit this Christmas.
The aspiration of the exhibition is to stir people into living in synchronisation, with commonalities being embraced and friendship and peace being pushed to the front of people’s minds. It will celebrate the variety and vibrancy of artistic ideas in regards to faith and mysticism at this special time of year.
“Codes of Faith” examines how artists choose to approach the purposely broad umbrella of spirituality very individually according to their own diverse histories.
Artistic works often serve to speak of the things that many of us find complicated to put into words and so, instantaneously, speak volumes. Most of the art displayed will be curated to provoke a divine reaction and persuade the viewer to inspect the carefully chosen themes around the spiritual power of diversity.
There undoubtedly be countless meanings to take away from this extraordinary exhibition and hopefully the influential images and context will stay with people who have visited for a long time. By prompting dialogue and encouraging interdisciplinary exploration, “Codes of Faith” will ring in the holiday season in a truly thought-provoking and meaningful extravaganza.
After the successful inauguration of the gallery - which has had visits from the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan and Darren Rodwell ,the Leader of Barking and Dagenham Borough - the gallery is progressing to another level by hosting one of the most significant art exhibitions in the city this winter. In a world where division is seemingly increasing, there is a need for more of us to come together to celebrate diversity. One of the early consequences of the recent Brexit vote has been to bring into sharp focus the social and cultural imbalance between people in our communities. This exhibition aims to get you to rejoice in exploring and deepening your relationship with your sacred side and your relationships with others. You will experience ever changing, ever captivating works of art - wondrous creativity married with modern progressive designs that offer you a plethora of joys for the season.
We look forward to welcoming a diverse audience of art collectors, art critics, and anyone in search of something beautiful who feel that they will benefit from the magic of the powerful “Codes of Faith” exhibition. This is an unmissable chance to see creative works of breathtaking quality and astonishing beauty all of which you have never seen anything like this before. For more information about the gallery show and the opening, please contact Laura at laura@lauraIgallery.com

Colour and art breathes new life into the new and up-coming area of Barking and Dagenham Neighborhood
In the lead up to the Frieze Art Fair and the beginning of the London Art Season, Laura I. Gallery is thrilled to announce the official opening, on the 7th October 2016, of its first exhibition, “Blessings of Life”.
“Blessings of Life” is the inaugural exhibition for the Laura I. Gallery displaying a compilation of remarkable paintings from different collections from 2013 to 2016 by Laura Iosifescu. “Blessings of Life” is a collection of dynamic sculptural paintings by Laura Iosifescu playing on themes of nature, the human world and technology. This powerful exhibition celebrates the synergy and wonder of the world we live in.
In a world where mass media and social media revel indarkness, “Blessings of Life” celebrates the best of humankind. Here the artist wonders at the diversity of cultures, faith and our love for our environment. Our connection with the natural, with each other and even with technology is celebrated in evocative layered paintings. In this exhibition the artist has strived to create a living Eden that arrests the senses and challenges traditional views of painting.
Laura has already attracted considerable praise and attention in the art world following her creation of “Blossom Escape”, a dress sculpted entirely from paint. Showcased at a Princes Trust Event, hosted by the Saatchi Gallery, this creation highlights the artist’s passion for pushing the boundaries of art and her innovative application of paint. This unique piece was displayed alongside the work of well known artists such as Tracey Emin, Marc Quinn and Xavier Mascaro.
As Laura Iosifescu unpicks the relationship between humans and environment, the gallery itself is creating modern history as Barking Riverside area comes back to life, emerging from its previous industrial life and preparing to challenge, engage and delight the community.
This gallery is not just a gallery where you display artwork. It is a creative space where magic happens. It is the heart of the artist, a unique and individual space, where every corner has its own individual special touch by the artist and where the artist creates and engages with the people of Barking and beyond.
Laura I. Gallery has already captured the interest of the press,being now featured in Barking and Dagenham News Post and Newham Recorder Newspaper.Also this space along with other local creative businesses and artists’ spaces will be on the radar of the mayor of London himself, Sadik Khan, who will inaugurate the spaces on the 6th of October 2016 as part of a unique collaboration between Bow Arts Charity and the Council to help shape,inspire and regenerate the Barking and Dagenham area.
With music and drinks as well as a unique opportunity to see “Blossom Escape” being modelled live, this is guaranteed to be one of the most exciting events of the year. For those who are interested in discovering unique things, this is definitely a space to watch out for.
