“When we make our god, we should make it a nice one. Vulnerability, folly and a healthy amount of self-deprecation. SO IT GOES…”
28th SEPTEMBER – 30TH SEPTEMBER, THE VINYL FACTORY, FREE ENTRY

This week Charming Baker's new exhibition ‘SO IT GOES…’ opening in Soho. The exhibition will showcase his most impressive body of work to date spanning bronze sculptures, large scale paintings and prints. Inspired by life, vulnerability and humanity,

‘SO IT GOES…’ will open at The Vinyl Factory from Friday 28th September and close on Sunday 30th September with a limited number of works and prints available to purchase.

Speaking of the inspiration behind ‘SO IT GOES…’,

Charming Baker said: “I find myself constantly trying to process life, it seems with various degrees of success. I used to think we’d all grow older and wiser, but I just seem to grow older. Maybe it’s enough to be just along for the ride!

I want to take the sting out of vulnerability. I want my work to give the feeling of going on a first date with someone you want to spend the rest of your life with, after you’ve just had a bad haircut. Nothing is only ever one thing. I don’t see why I shouldn’t bend or break an image to alter its original meaning, if only at least to entertain. Hopefully the work isn’t without a sense of humour.”

A former student of the prestigious Central St Martin’s, Charming Baker has gone on to have a series of sold out shows in NYC, LA and London, displayed work in the Victoria and Albert Museum and is a presenter for SKY ARTS The Art Show. Although primarily a painter, Baker has produced sculptural pieces in a wide and varied choice of material. Known to purposefully damage his work by drilling, cutting and even shooting it, Baker intentionally puts in to question the preciousness of art and the definition of its beauty, adding to the emotive charge of the work he produces. Legendary critic Edward Lucie-Smith has described Baker’s paintings as having, “something more, a kind of romantic melancholy that is very British. And sometimes the melancholy turns out to have sharp claws. The pictures make you sit up and examine your conscience.”
