Nancy Fouts seeks out varied objects that she marries poetically, leaving the interpretation of their meaning open to the mind of their viewers.
The themes of nature and religion frequently recur and overlap in the artist’s work as mediums to make us see things afresh.
Nancy has her next solo exhibition at PA&G gallery in London on the 21st June 2012.
The overarching theme is freedom of thought; Fouts makes art inspired by the naïveté of childhood and by doing so she imagines each of her subjects without preconceptions.
On the subject of her work, Fouts says; ‘My work is not a comment on religion, nature or indeed anything, it is all about manipulating the object to realise my idea. Everything starts with the idea.’
American born Fouts yet has lived and worked in London for the past 40 years, first graduating from the Chelsea College of Art and then the RCA. In the 1960’s the artist went on to co-found the Shirt Sleeve Studio and later set up the artist-run gallery Fouts and Fowler.
