I love the work of Nancy Fouts, she makes everyday object extraordinary.
-Sir Peter Blake
The artworks of modern day surrealist Nancy Fouts frequently explore themes of time, religious iconography, nature and humour. The artist works typically with everyday objects, injecting them with her unique wit and manipulating them in such a way that we seem to recognize them for the first time. During the 1960’s Fouts co-founded the pioneering design and model-making company Shirt Sleeve Studio, creating seminal ad campaigns for Tate Gallery and album covers for significant bands including Jethro Tull and Steeleye Span amongst others. Examples of the artist’s works are to be found in private homes and established collections across the globe, including that of the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.
Her work his currently exhibited at the prestigious Somerset House in London in the exhibirion: “Daydreaming with Stanley Kubrick” until 24th August 2016.
