Claerwen James, Girl with Pale Hair and a Pale Green Dress, 2018, Oil on canvas

Flowers Gallery is pleased to present new work by British figurative painter Claerwen James. Quietly enigmatic, James’ paintings of youthful female subjects are not portraits in the usual sense of the word. Painting from photographs, she frequently works with anonymous images, scouring car boot sales and junk shops for magazines and film stills, alongside her own photographed images and family pictures. With the identity of each subject considered unimportant, she denies the instinct to try to make sense of the captured photographic moment in concrete narrative terms.
