Claire Luxton is a British contemporary multidisciplinary artist represented by MTArt Agency working with photography, installation, poetry and painting. After receiving a 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.
Her work explores the delicate equilibrium between humans and nature, the ominous undercurrents of her work oscillates 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. This was followed by her second solo exhibition BOTANICA in 2017. The artist’s work is part of the impressive Artemezia Foundation in the United States and her work has also been shown in London, Miami and Singapore, including exhibits at The London Art Fair and Art Basel.
Luxton has collaborated with brands from L’Occitane to Adobe or McQueens and created bespoke public artworks for clients such as Westminster Council, JP Morgan, The Affordable Art Fair & The Birmingham Royal Ballet. Luxton has recently had articles published in Harper’s Bazaar and her works selected for an exhibition on peace at the UN in New York. Luxton’s work has also been spotted in both Glamour Italia and Germany and on Sky News.
