The metaphorical finale of the photo magazine THE OPÉRA

Allen Jones

Dimly lit jazz clubs, cocktail bars, circus, theatre and magic shows permeate the erotically charged work of British painter and leading exponent of Pop Art, Allen Jones. His paintings, featuring dancers and lovers, express dazzling energies of illusion and fantasy.
Caught between the world of dreams and reality, changing scenes full of illusion and magic point to the power of fantasy and the artistic vision. Jones uses such scenes to address the major themes of human existence: the cycle of eternal recurrence but also the creative energy of transformation as the quintessence of life and art. At the heart of his work lies the magical power of love, which unites opposites and generates something new from the alliance of female and male principles. The goddess of love and beauty thus plays a crucial role in Jones’ aesthetic.
