Last year I saw Allen Jones work for the first time at @marlboroughcontemporary in Chelsea and fell in love. When exploring the fantastic exhibits currently on view, I wandered upstairs only to find another one of his works. I was so excited to see “Changing Room,” 2016 and I couldn’t help but want to try to copy the model. The canvas is abstract yet it seems fitting with the title as we don’t quite know what she is going to change into and where she is going, yet the graduation cap and gown and the trousers and feminine hat give us a clue that she might be transitioning into adulthood or taking some major step in her life or career. I am so happy that I got to revisit this work that I fell in love with last year! Make sure to stop in and visit the group show on the 2nd floor.
