Jamie McCartney Sculptures 

Jamie McCartney is a professional sculptor, now working from his new studio on Brighton seafront. Although English, he trained at the renowned Hartford Art School, the oldest art college in America, from where he graduated (Bachelor of Fine Art with highest honours) in 1991.
McCartney challenges the viewer, exploring what most of us wonder about, “How different are my genitals?” He embraces their individuality and differences through many of his projects, specifically The Great Wall of aVagina.
Throughout art history there has been a misogynistic approach to what the standard female form looks like, sadly this still exists in the world today. In much of McCartney’s work, he brings to light the insecurities women hold on the aesthetic detail of their genitals.
Men, alike, often experience this insecurity, which McCartney also explores in some of his castings. In his Great Wall of Vagina exhibition McCartney cast 400 vaginas, all perfectly unique and individual.
“My artworks demonstrate a career-long commitment to experimentation. Often using the body as inspiration, I work with traditional and novel materials utilizing many of my own processes. Not content with simply making beautiful things, there is often a socio-political agenda in my work, a result of my life as an activist as a young man.
I’m fascinated by the power of emotionally loaded subjects and objects and how to lend that power to my artworks. I’m interested in reprographic processes, dovetailing casts and experimental photography into my working practice.
I also like to use humor to break down barriers and encourage public engagement with tricky subjects. No subject is too taboo.
When I find something that obsesses me I have to pick at that thread until I can tease out what I am trying to say. I’m no stranger to controversy.”
