Carmen Clews is a British-born sculptor and painter who currently resides in Cape Town, South Africa. Carmen’s artwork is endlessly inspired by her passion for understanding that there is more to life than meets the eye. She explores the inexplicable, the mystery and miracles of life within her work and uses holistic, spiritual and physical practices to support her immersive studio practice. Her ongoing exploration in abstract expressionism encourages a more “playful” approach which results in an expression of surrender. She believes in creating without fear and trusting in the creative process which naturally lends itself to authenticity. Carmen’s motivation is to share her vision of “the magnificence of life” through her art.
