© Jamie Clements, 2020.
Jamie Clements was born in Suffolk and educated at Cumbria College of Art & Design. He lives in a wood in Suffolk and makes work that is inspired by his wife Maxine, the nature that surrounds him and the archetypes of his childhood.
Throughout his practice he finds himself drawn to the figure, which he depicts in fanatical detail through drawing, painting and sculpture. He finds inspiration in the meticulous craftsmanship of artists such as Michelangelo, Richard Dadd and Holman Hunt and re-interprets the ideals presented by these artists through a union with his childhood toys. By integrating a painstakingly observed portrait of his wife with the familiar figure of He-Man for example, Jamie attempts to reconcile the furthest opposites of masculine and feminine into the form of a small icon like figurine.
