Clementine McGaw is a London based artist who graduated from Central St. Martins school of art in 2010 with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art. Shortly after leaving St.Martins, Clementine won 'Best Emerging Fine Artist 2010-2011' voted for by Saatchi&Saatchi.
About my artwork
Her Current works focus on the human condition and she is particularly fascinated with the theories connected to Bare Life, specifically the writings of Georgio Agamben.
Clementine confronts issues that deal with the politics of war, the power of the Sovereign State and the State of exception.
Making paintings from authentic photographs which captures images of suffering and torture, this includes Prisoners of War, Genocide, Ethnic Cleansing and Massacres. She uses the process of painting to encapsulate the sufferers emotion.
Clementine also challenges the morality of the authentic images whilst highlighting the suffering and pain through the language of paint.
Artists I like

Clementine, thanks for the friend invite. Looking through your images, I was struck by its similarity in intent to the work of Jim Steg, a thoughtful artist whose drawing classes were a continual stream of revelations. His images are scattered over dozens of sites on the internet.
