‘Natural Aviation’ the focus of new exhibit at London Luton Airport Gallery

Published on : Thursday, February 7, 2013

Lauren Clemmet is the latest artist to exhibit her work following a successful competition which offered talented local artists from Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire the opportunity to display inspirational artwork in London Luton Airport’s Gateway Gallery.

Lauren is a local artist working across Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire. Her current work explores ‘Natural Aviation’ including the freedom which flight can evoke. For this exhibition she has created, along with other bird paintings, paintings that incorporate engineering and aviation information with images of birds in flight.

Lauren says of her work, ‘I am interested in the feeling of freedom which flight can evoke, the letting go, leaving everything behind without a care in the world, such as going on holiday in an aeroplane. I have found it both fascinating and challenging to attempt to fit the two aspects of technical information and natural forms of birds together. I was keen to gain more understanding and try to liken the technical drawings in aviation textbooks with what I observed by watching and photographing birds in flight.

’Sian Pearce, Community Relations Executive for London Luton Airport said, ‘We hope that Lauren’s focus on natural aviation and particularly the technical aspect of birds in flight should provide an interesting perspective for our passengers, bringing to mind the fun and beauty of air travel. With an average of 25,000 passengers travelling through the Airport every day, the Gateway Gallery provides local artists with a fantastic opportunity to showcase their artwork as well as giving Airport passengers greater access to local artistic talent’.

The Gallery, delivered in partnership with Luton Culture, is located in the main terminal building adjacent to the Onward Travel Centre. London Luton Airport is the fifth busiest Airport in the UK and expects to see almost 10 million passengers in 2013.The competition was run in partnership with Luton Culture, the University of Bedfordshire, Arts and Business and the Bedfordshire, Buckingham and Hertfordshire Artist Networks.
