I’m pleased to announce my first virtual exhibit hosted by the Fish Factory in Penryn to be held on the 19th of November.

“Although our doors are closed for the moment, the art community is still connected and stronger than ever. The Fish Factory is pleased to announce the third instalment of its Virtual Gallery Project “Ben Baker: An Online Exhibition” which will be live from the 19th November 2020. Ben Baker is a Falmouth based artist inspired by the south-west coast and his career as a boat builder. By using iron wire, Ben transforms his intricate line drawings into a three-dimensional, illustrative style of sculpture. These pieces of wirework are interactive, utilising mechanisms so the viewer can simply turn a handle and the sculpture will begin to move. Ben Baker experiments with playfulness, yet his pieces stay grounded to the coastal communities from which he drew inspiration, often pairing sculpture with found and reclaimed timber. The online exhibition will be live from the 19th November 2020 and Ben Baker’s pieces will be available to purchase through our online exhibition.”
