2008 Exhibition Catalogue

This catalogue was published to coincide with the artist's solo exhibition 30 April- 24 May 2008.

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 a frozen moment in time.
