Chloe’s artistic practice examines disparate aspects of the self and identity. From figurative conjuring of expressive bodies onto paper and canvas, to the exploration of human multitudes through microscopic photography, she seeks to continually redefine the self in different contexts and from varying heights.
Her work extends the exploration of identity beyond subject bodies and onto objects in an attempt to highlight the formation of meaning as a by-product of the collision between a subject and an object. From breathing juxtaposed essence into pieces of ceramics and observing their unorthodox existence, to somber personal scenes of still-life that serve as portraits devoid of a face, she persistently questions the nature of objects and their role as the building blocks of the self.
Through the creation and study of garments, Chloe further investigates the complex interaction of people and their things, personally and artistically involving herself with various aspects of production and consumption such as supply-chain transparency, labour struggles, planned obsolescence, DIY-clothing, and sentimental value. The epistemological, practical, and gendered boundaries of art, crafts, and science represent some of the other recurring motifs in her work.
