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.

Speaking of form, I really wanted to update you on how things have been shaping up creatively for me lately and to bring some good news in time for Christmas.
It’s been a while since I was last in touch, but I can promise that no news really means good news that I am hoping you are going to love.
I have been busy with a new body of work for my first solo exhibition. I am super excited, as this is something I have been anticipating and waiting for so long and now is the perfect time to share with you.
Being that true perfectionist, I really want to organize what I hope will be for you one of next year’s most memorable events. Also, I am working on a few performable paintings and wearable artwork too. So stay tuned!

Obviously, you can expect some teasing, with short video clips of my work, as everyone will have to wait just a little longer for the full details of my newest work.
This Year’s Talk of the Arts World
Meantime, the main reason that I am writing to you is that I have to announce bigger news about my next group exhibition. The word on the street has it that this is going to be one of the most exciting art events of the year.
100 other highly talented artists will be showing their art and performing live for your entertainment, making this art event lively, spontaneous, curious, inventive and every shade of spectacular between.
In the Flux Exhibition at the Royal College of Art I will be displaying two of my own pieces and will be wearing my renowned Blossom Escape 2, just in case you haven’t seen it by now.
Please let me know quickly if you would like to join me for this huge celebration as I still have got few tickets left for my exclusive Private Viewing, but don’t expect to have them for long after posting this news out to you all.
Of course, you can also visit the exhibition any other time you wish when open to the public.
As you may already know by now, I was born at Christmas and so this year I am once more getting ready to play Santa and could be helping you share the joy around too via my commissions. I will also be offering some pre-Christmas good cheer with huge discounts on my original artwork. This will only be a one-time offer to celebrate Christmas and my birthday this year.
So come and share the celebrations and don’t forget to let me know if I can expect to see you for my PV, or come and introduce yourself at the main exhibition.
‘Til then, may the season bring you as much good cheer as I feel right now, knowing what’s on offer for you folks!
