About The Artist

About Jamie McCartney

Multi-disciplinary Artist

I have been a professional artist for over 30 years, working largely in figurative sculpture and photography. I take a multidisciplinary approach, creating highly finished, museum quality artworks from my UK studio.

Social & Political Artworks

After crewing a peace boat as a teenager I went to art school full of enthusiasm for direct action, where my professors, who were all political artists, nurtured that zeal. I remain an enthusiastic proponent of art as an engine of social change. A picture IS worth a thousand words…

I work in many materials including bronze, steel, glass, marble, fibreglass and found objects. As well as nudes I’m known for my genital sculptures: Some are social commentary and others are simply humorous but they appear to have started a movement…

Photography

I have developed an experimental photographic technique using an adapted document scanner as a digital camera. The images have a decidedly painterly look and feel, taking photography in its literal sense of ‘painting with light’.
