Lauren Baker takes neon to new levels, with fields of energy, vibrations and materials like crystal and bone. Find out more about Lauren's fascinating practice.

Take a tour of his studio, hear about his upcoming show alongside the Venice Biennale and find out exactly what pursuing creativity means to Nick Malone.
Pedro Correa is a fine art photographer with a difference. With a recent solo show in London, and a portfolio just launched on Rise Art, we decided to sit down with him and find out more about his work, and this elusive thing he terms the decisive moment.
'Conceptual Art in Britain 1964-1979' opens this week at the Tate Britain. Rise Art's very own Bruce McLean is included in the exhibition, with some of his groundbreaking early works being shown alongside the likes of Victor Burgin and Keith Arnatt. This week we're celebrating the best of British, showcasing Rise Art's most prominent British conceptual artists!
