Statement

Allen Jones is a British pop artist, best known for his sculptures.

Hisunconventional and irreverent work was based in popular culture with apreferance for glamour and style, and his aesthetic centred on beautiful women visualised erotically and stereotypically as in glossy magazines, advertisements and cartoon strips. Underpinned with a great mastery of colour and a consummate painting technique, Jones's work fluctuates between painting and sculpture. On a flat canvas painted forms appear sculptural and his three-dimensional works are painterly. He uses colour to describe form, at times with graphic precision, or conversely with an energy and freedom of gesture which is close to direct expression. Similar developments are evident in his printmaking.

The sculptures in the Korova Milkbar from the film A Clockwork Orange were based on works by Jones after he turned down the request by Stanley Kubrick to design the set for no payment. He also designed Barbet Schroeder's 1976 film Maîtresse.
