Photographer biographies and an illustrated appendix are also included.
In a dazzling meeting of art and fashion, Volume 1 is presented in a multiple artwork by British pop art luminary, Allen Jones. Best known for his controversial fetish furniture, Allen Jones has maintained a uniquely striking visual language ever since the emergence of Pop in the 1950s. In sculpture, painting, and lithography, he merges female figuration with the iconography of city life, consumerism, and spectacle. Jones work has been exhibited in solo shows around the world, most recently in a major retrospective at the Royal Academy, London. For the Naomi Campbell Art Edition, Jones artwork deploys stylized contours and smooth surfaces to invoke a sense of touch, while exploring the role of the supermodel in contemporary culture. In Joness words, it does not attempt to illustrate Naomi, but to encapsulate her.
Collectors Edition of 1,000 numbered copies, each signed by Naomi Campbell and presented in a multiple artwork by British pop art luminary, Allen Jones.
