Claire Luxton is a UK based multi-disciplinary artist working with photography, painting, poetry and installation. After receiving an BFA from Goldsmiths University of London, Luxton created a challenging series of self portraits, pushing her emotional and physical boundaries by becoming both the subject matter and the materiality. 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.
