I would love actually to own one or two of his pieces! Visual artist Nick Smith returns to Lawrence Alking gallery in London with a new body of work inspired by erotic literature.
Marking 400 years since Shakespeare’s death, Paramour show employs Nick Smith’s signature ‘color-chip’ methodology, combining modern nudes with excerpts from the Bards’ sonnets and plays. Review the Sales Catalogue here (very reasonable prices!)
You can judge a book by its cover, or you can take a closer look and discover other dimensions. Paramour isn’t objectification; it’s celebration of the female form, and of love and desire.”
– Nick Smith
“My intention is to reconnect the familiar visual components of love and desire with the neglected classics of written romance. I present an alchemy of visual celebration with the slow burn of imagination that the written word
stokes so admirably.”
Paramour runs from Friday 18th March to Saturday 16th April at Lawrence Alkin Gallery, 42 New Compton Street, London WC2H 8DA
