- Alumni, 2004
Claerwen James studied at the Slade School of Fine Art from 1999-2003 and on The Drawing Year at The Prince's Drawing School (now the Royal Drawing School) from 2003-4. She is represented by Flowers Gallery and has shown regularly with them in London and New York since 2004. In 2006 Francis Spufford wrote of Claerwen's paintings that their subject matter is the photographic moment "when a point in time is snatched from the flow, sealed into stillness and set in strange relationship to the continued life… which we do not see in photographs, but which they always imply, giving the medium its mortal edge." Claerwen lives and works in Cambridge.
