NICK SMITH “PARAMOUR” @LAWRENCE ALKIN GALLERY

Following his debut sell-out solo show in January 2015, visual artist NICK SMITH returns to LAWRENCE ALKIN GALLERY gallery with a new body of work inspired by erotic literature. Marking 400 years since Shakespeare’s death, PARAMOUR employs Nick Smith’s signature ‘colour-chip’ methodology, combining modern nudes with excerpts from the Bards’ sonnets and plays. As well as Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet and Venus and Adonis, the works feature racy text from poetry and prose by DH Lawrence, John Cleland, EM Berens and Sarah Walters. Exploring lust, love and appreciation of the female form, Paramour brings classic literature to the modern conscience, telling stories of illicit love through evocative imagery.
