Film, fashion design, theatre, citylife, advertising – these are the subjects of Allen Jones, whose satirical brand of pop art is created using distinctive storyboarding techniques. Works date back to the 1960s when Allen started out as a student at the Royal College Art alongside David Hockney, Derek Boshier, Peter Phillips and Ron Kitaj.
Although Jones was later expelled, this cohort helped establish a new visual language for British Art – drawing heavily on contemporary culture and the human figure. Jones is particularly interested in the representation of women, and has become known for his erotic sculptures in which he uses their forms as human furniture. Examples are shown here alongside his portraits of contemporary female icons, such as Darcey Bussell and Kate Moss. – Art Fund
