Spider Death and Lauren Lau "Born Against" at China Heights Gallery


Spider Death and Lauren Lau
Born Against

In conjunction with Art Month 2012, China Heights is proud to present 'Born Against', a showcase of recent works by Spider Death and Lauren Lau; inspired by somber melancholy, punk genesis and a mutual fascination of each other.

Spider Death's work, inspired wholly by his tattoo heritage and background in punk hardcore music, are illustrative watercolours and ink on paper which machinate with fatalistic notions. The traditional tattoo art and fine illustration techniques applied, create congruent distinction within his work.

Lauren Lau works with oil paint on fine linen to create detailed classical portraiture, sharing a similar passive impulse, as well as an obvious adoration for the unique characters and worlds she encounters. In addition to these works, as an ode to 15th Century artists and anatomists, Lauren will be including appropriations from anatomical renaissance illustrations.

The 'Born Against' collection, of oil paintings, prints, illustrations and watercolours, commonly captures the grim realities of life, sorrow, desolation and a conquering devotion.
