‘Sex Shops’ – By Jane Hall
3rd June 2013 – 19th July 2013
With its sex shops, strip joints, lap dance clubs and massage parlours, the Soho area of London has always been at the heart of the capital’s sex scene, and it’s the gaudy neon-lit frontages of Soho’s assorted adult venues that provide the inspiration for a new body of work by the artist Jane Hall.
She first shot to fame in 2009 thanks to her popular Seaside Sensation exhibition, with pictures capturing the faded glamour and charm of the traditional British seaside holiday. But the Soho paintings see Jane’s work take on a darker, sexier and more adult edge.
Jane Hall is a professional artist who was born in London, raised in Clacton-on-Sea and currently lives in Great Yarmouth. She has travelled extensively in Europe but chooses to paint British culture and often focuses on the faded glamour of places she knows and has seen change, such as the Great British seaside and the Soho sex scene. As well as two successful solo shows Seaside Sensation 1 and 2, her work has also been exhibited at the Chelsea Art Gallery in London, the Djanogly Art Gallery in Nottingham, the Fisher Theatre in Bungay and the Assembly House in Norwich.
