Nancy Fouts

Posted by Charlotte Simmonds,

The work of Nancy Fouts smells like popcorn in a pool hall, sounds like the beating of butterfly wings and looks like something you might find in a wizard’s medicine cupboard. This brilliant artist can flip your expectations on their heads with her lookbook of visual puns both lovely and bizarre. A self proclaimed object hoarder, Fouts follows in the surrealist tradition of marrying unrelated items to turn the everyday into the uncanny. But it’s her knack for clean presentation which really helps these images pack a punch. Are we laughing? Are we cringing? Do we care?
