Named by Timeout amongst their ‘terrific things to do in London this November’ and recommended by the Royal Academy as one of the 5 best art shows to see this week, Lucy Sparrow’s ‘Shoplifting’ exhibition has launched at the Lawrence Alkin Gallery, London.

'63 Ways to Leave Your Lover' - Unique with signed certificate of authenticity.

Described as a Felt Sculpture Artist, Sparrow has previously gained critical acclaim from her public installations ‘Cornershop’, ‘The Warmongery’ and ‘Madame Roxy’s Erotic Emporium’.  The ‘Shoplifting’ exhibition represents her debut gallery exhibition, however.

According to the Lawrence Alkin Gallery, visitors can see rooms ‘overflowing with temptation’ whilst cabinet editions feature handcrafted items ranging from ‘Spam’ to ‘Champagne’ and ‘everything in between’.

The exhibition launch last Thursday was a fun, ‘felt-filled’ evening, appreciated by all who attended.  Indeed, Art Today consider this particular textile artist as One to Watch… Her ‘Best of British’ piece detailing pantry products from Brasso to Bisto (Limited Edition of 50) has already sold 35 units.

Showing at Lawrence Alkin until 26th November, Sparrow’s work will also be featured at the Vancouver Art Gallery until February next year as part of the Takashi Murakami group exhibition entitled ‘Juxtapoz x Super Flat’.
