“I love the work of Nancy Fouts. She makes the everyday object extraordinary” - Sir Peter Blake
“Nancy turns the functional inside out with her brain storming made manifest” - Gavin Turk
Soho’s newest art gallery, Pertwee, Anderson & Gold will presents ‘UN-THINK’; an intriguing glimpse into the surreal world of artist Nancy Fouts. The exhibition has turned the Bateman Street space into a curious display of intricate and original pieces filled with the artist’s dark humour and abstract view of the world.
Nancy Fouts seeks out varied objects that she marries poetically, to transform each one into a surprise version of itself. So in ‘Butterfly Dart’, the flight of a dart is crafted from the delicate wings of a butterfly, in ‘Holy War’, religious motifs have been added to a sculpture of a hand grenade.
An American-born Anglophile, the eccentric Fouts lives in London and studied at both the Chelsea College and Royal College of Art.
