2006 Exhibition Catalogue

This catalogue was published to coincide with the artist's solo exhibition 10 May - 3 June 2006. 

Claerwen James is known for her painted portraits of young female subjects, which explore the private moments captured by photographic snapshots. By painting directly from photographs, James keeps a deliberate distance between herself and the sitter, in order to observe more closely what may be simultaneously revealed and withheld within the frozen moment in time. 

This publication includes an essay by Francis Spufford.
