Claire Luxton is a photographer, who is dedicated to visual storytelling, managing to use surreal imagery in order to create realistic themes. She has a BA in Fine Arts from Goldsmiths in London and she works within the realms of Photography, Sculpture, and Painting. Her work includes large-scale pieces and installations. She is fascinated by the way that the environment and certain aspects of it interact with her work and her models. She even lets the first lead the way and show her what needs to be done.
Her photography and sculpture explore nature and examine the female form and both its fragility and strength.
Her sculptural floral narratives create an intricate mix of transition, transformation and physicality.
She chooses carefully for her material, which interact in a very interesting way with the female models.
As understood, she is challenged to adapt her female forms to the natural environment and its needs.
She goes by the saying of painter Monet that reads ”I am following Nature without being able to grasp her, I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers”.
She also believes that there is so much lack of knowledge among people, that imagination is our only tool to discover new information about our world and lives.
Flowers and nature in general are her two main artistic vehicles that help her form her art.
