The artworks of surrealist Nancy Fouts frequently explored themes of time, religious iconography, nature and humour

Prior to her death in 2018, the artist worked with everyday objects, injecting them with her unique wit and manipulating them such that the viewer can reinterpret them in a completely different way from which they were originally intended.

During the 1960s, Fouts co-founded the pioneering design and model-making company Shirt Sleeve Studio, creating seminal advertising campaigns for Tate Gallery and album covers for a number of bands including Jethro Tull and Steeleye Span amongst others.

Examples of the artist's groundbreaking works can be found in established collections across the work, including the Victoria & Albert Museum in London
