Clara-Lane Lens is a Belgian artist currently based in Berlin. Recent graduate of the LUCA School of Arts in Gent, she can’t imagine her life without painting. Surrounded by art since she was born, first by music through her father, Clara-Lane decided to dedicate herself to painting, which allows her to express herself fully.
Of a curious nature, Clara-Lane is inspired by people; paying attention to the way they walk, talk, dress, and interact with each other. Her models are her friends, acquaintances, but also strangers she met in a café, at a party, or even in the streets. First, Clara-Lane gets to know her models and then photographs them in the intimate setting of their home, where they are at their most unguarded. In her work, Clara-Lane wants to capture the instant when a person detaches themselves from the role they perform in society, a moment of vulnerability. Her models seem lost in their thoughts, introverted, almost physically absent. Giving themselves entirely to the artist, the models appear ambivalent in their portrait, both defenceless and powerful in their posture and gaze. Clara-Lane keeps on developing her technique, painting on increasingly bigger canvases, aiming to depict more of her models’ living spaces, mirrors of their inner beings.
