Allen Jones (1937) Right hand lady 1968 silkscreen 55x53 cm

Jones was born in Southampton and from 1955 to 1961 studied at Hornsey College of Art. In 1960 he was expelled from the Royal College of Art, where his contemporaries were R. B. Kitaj, Peter Phillips, David Hockney and Derek Boshier. From 1961 to 1963 Jones taught at Croydon College of Art. Jones' exhibition of erotic sculptures, such as the set, Hat Stand, Table and Chair (1969), are studies in forniphilia, which turn women into items of human furniture. Much of his work draws on the imagery of rubber fetishism and BDSM. External video TateShots: Allen Jones, Tate Gallery The sculptures in the Korova Milk Bar from the 1971 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. Jones designed Barbet Schroeder's 1976 film Maîtresse. He was elected R.A. (Royal Academician) by the Royal Academy in 1986. David Gilmour, lead guitarist for Pink Floyd, holds up a copy of Figures by Allen Jones during one of the interview portions of Pink Floyd: Live at Pompeii. An example of Jones' 1969 Chair sculpture (as well as over fifty other works) is in the UK's Tate Collection. Three of his paintings are in the collection of the Centro de Arte Moderna of the Gulbenkian Foundation, Lisbon. Jones lives and works in London.
