JANN HAWORTH WAS A CENTRAL PLAYER IN THE EXPLOSION OF POP ART IN LONDON IN THE 1960S WITH HER DISTINCTIVE CLOTH AND TEXTILE SOFT SCULPTURES. WITH THEN HUSBAND PETER BLAKE SHE CO-DESIGNED THE ICONIC ALBUM COVER FOR THE BEATLES’ SGT PEPPER’S LONELY HEARTS CLUB BAND, AND IS CONSISTENTLY REPRESENTED IN RETROSPECTIVES ACROSS THE WORLD, INCLUDING POP ART, THE 1968 LANDMARK EXHIBITION AT HAYWARD GALLERY IN LONDON. HAWORTH’S FIGURATIVE WORK WITH FABRIC AND CLOTH REMAINS HER SIGNATURE STYLE, THROUGH WHICH SHE CHALLENGES GENDER STEREOTYPES (AS WITH THE ICONIC RICHARD LINDNER DOLL). HAWORTH CONTINUES TO WORK TODAY AND A SOLO SHOW - JANN HAWORTH: CLOSE UP - WAS HELD AT PALLANT HOUSE GALLERY (2019/20).
