Jamie McCartney is a British artist who lives and works in Brighton. He trained at Hartford Art School (USA), graduating in 1991.
Focused on notions of beauty and society’s obsession with the physical self, no subject is too controversial, nor any process or material off limits. McCartney pushes his subjects through to weird extremes- torsos like perfectly peeled orange skins curl up on their plinths, one legged seven-toed women reach their ideal weight in bronze. His five year project, The Great Wall of Vagina was accompanied by a book of women’s testimonies, speaking of the empowerment of his work. This feeling of liberation is widely shared by those who have encountered his art.
