Allen Jones unveils new sculptures

ROUGH CUT – NO REPORTER NARRATION

STORY: British pop artist Allen Jones returns to the subject of supermodel Kate Moss in his latest exhibition in London, which once more puts the female form centre-stage in sculptures ranging from the hyper-realistic to the abstract. The 78-year-old artist has been exploring the female figure in his work for half a century, with some of his earlier pieces such as “Hatstand”, “Table” and “Chair” provoking controversy for their sexual charge. Jones is also known for his 2013 work “Body Armour”, a portrait of Moss wearing a body cast sculpture that he had made in 1978. He has also produced paintings and other sculptures of Moss, and the latest of them, “A Model Model”, made of polished stainless steel and cast resin, features in this show. “The Blue Gymnast” is another hyper-realistic piece, but several of the other works on display are brightly coloured abstract pieces made from perspex that merely suggest a female figure. Over the past 40 years, Jones’s work has been exhibited around the world, with a major retrospective at the Royal Academy in London last year. “Colour Matters” is on display at Marlborough Fine Art in London until January 23.
