Created during the first UK lockdown, Nic Joly was inspired by the renewed importance of family to depart from his satirical work and revisit his popular title 'The Art Of Making Love'. In 'All You Need' Nic highlights the love and support we have experienced during these dark times.
The wooden letters, which he first paints white, boast over 40 layers of hand-dripped paint that spent around three weeks on the artist's floor collecting colour and creating a brightness he hopes will light up people's homes. What's more, each set of scaffolding took Nic nearly four days to complete from laser cutting, gluing, painting, spraying to painting again.
Although the artist admits that the national lockdown provided him with an unprecedented amount of time to work, the immensity and detail of his process reminds us that this piece truly was a labour of love.
