Claire Luxton is a British contemporary multi-disciplinary artist working with photography, installation, poetry and painting. After receiving her BFA from Goldsmiths University of London, Luxton created a challenging series of self portraits & sculptures, pushing her emotional and physical boundaries by becoming both the subject matter and the materiality. She aims to explore the delicate equilibrium between humans and nature. The ominous undercurrents in her work oscillate between constructed femininity and alluring vulnerability, seducing the viewer with intrigue and uncertainty. Luxton’s work draws on both the modern anxiety of society and the environment; each portrait, painting and accompanying poetry, becoming an exploration of isolation, desire and uncertainty. In 2015 Luxton’s exploration of human fragility, physicality and the female form culminated in her first solo exhibition, “Avalon”, followed by “BOTANICA” in 2017. The artist’s work has been shown in London, Miami and Singapore, including exhibits at The London Art Fair and Miami’s Art Basel. Luxton has collaborated with brands from Adobe to McQueen. Luxton has been published in Harper’s Bazaar and her works selected for an exhibition on peace at the United Nations in New York.
