The upcoming exhibition at Contemporary Collective showcases the work of multidisciplinary, British artist Claire Luxton. Botanica seeks to explore notions of strength and fragility, examining nature and the female form. Luxton will radically transform the gallery space, seeking to suspend the viewer in an immersive environment that’s both clinical and other-worldly.
Luxton describes her new collection SPECIMEN(s) as ‘sculptural floral narratives’, uniquely combining flowers, water, ink and resin to create meticulously composed ecosystems, as if seen through a microscopic lens. Luxton further heightens the senses, by hand-embellishing the images with diamond dust and resin, to create an intricate an enchanting collection.
Luxton has gained notable success since graduating from Goldsmiths, University of London in 2014. Her highlights have included: a solo exhibition ‘Avalon’ at DegreeArt.com and collaborating with iconic fashion label Ada + Nik. Luxton was also selected as a finalist in the Xerxes Sculpture Prize 2015, which was showcased at the prestigious Serpentine Gallery. During Botanica, Luxton will be unveiling her latest collaboration, extending her offering to launch a collection of bespoke wallpapers designed by Claire Luxton, in partnership with Scandinavian based company Feathr. Explore Claire’s signature florals, dramatic compositions and romantic hues, transformed into stunning, wall murals.
