“MONEY SEX POWER” – an amazing new collection of paintings.
Royal artist Darren Baker announces the unveiling of his latest collection of artwork!
The ‘Money, Sex, Power’ collection has been over a year in the making and will feature a series of drawings and paintings exploring these core forces by portraying two models and Darren himself in a corridor of images.
The artist’s muses are portrayed in a series of poses conveying their personality and individuality. The narrative of the artist as director, and models as subjects, is followed throughout the series leading to the climax of the final masterpiece portraying the artist and models together. The sequence of artworks is a commentary on the 3 motivating forces in society and the viewer/subject dynamic. It also references various themes from the history of western art.
This amazing collection of artwork will tour 10 major commercial galleries this autumn and the original works will be complemented by a new series of limited edition prints.
