The artist has collaborated with brands from Adobe to McQueens and created bespoke public artworks for clients such as Westminster Council, The Crown Estate, 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 and exhibition on peace at the UN in New York. Luxton’s work has also been in both Glamour Italia and Germany and recently on the cover of FLUX magazine.
What can we expect from Claire
Luxton explores human fragility, physicality and the female form. Her 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.
“My new work feels like a tide of change, a building conversation between a forgotten part of myself and the perpetual rhythm and anxiety within today’s society. I seek to examine the anticipation of perfection and the heightened nervousness of self; an in-built loneliness from constantly seeking, looking, wanting, needing.”
Where can we see Claire’s work?
Currently – At a new exhibition in London during December & January called “Loading” with MTArt Agency and Koppel Project, also featuring Meritt Moore and Ben Cullen Williams.
January 2021 – Luxton has been working on multiple public art projects with MTArt, Westminster and the Crown Estate, so look out for her work across central London, including a large projection on Marble Arch for the Inside out festival.
There is also a new collaboration in January with McQueens in the pipeline.
