A Sweet Feast for the Eyes: Peter & Jayne Smith | 'Ticklish Allsorts' | 2022

From delectable cocktails to tasty tarts, Peter and Jayne Smith's 2022 collection sees the artistic duo playfully mix provocative themes with sugary treats to create a series of satirical artworks sure to lighten your day.  

This collection is inspired by the true origin story of Liquorice Allsorts. In 1899, Bassett Factory salesman Charlie Thompson was trying to sell a variety of liquorice covered sweets when he dropped the tray onto the floor, they loved how they looked all mixed together and the famous sweets were born. Channelling the colourfully chaotic spirit of this happy accident, Peter and Jayne Smith dropped a series of their sketches onto the floor, and the resultant playful mix of their beloved Impossimals in a range of risky positions resulted in the Ticklish Allsorts collection.

We see the beloved Impossimal characters continue to be set against more detailed backgrounds than ever before which draw the viewer in and create exciting and detailed scenes that you can get lost in for hours. Available in a range of sizes and compositions, this collection also features a range of unique original artworks, an exciting opportunity for any new or established Peter Smith collector.
