Jazz clubs, cocktail bars, circuses and magic shows pervade the erotically charged paintings of British Pop artist Allen Jones (born 1937). Jones developed an aesthetic centered on the eroticism of glossy magazines, advertisements and cartoons. These latest paintings continue Jones' pursuit of eroticism, and feature images of entwined dancers and lovers, surging with palpable energy and seductive color, caught up in the dance of eros that is Jones' Nietzschean vision of human vitality.
