Palm Umbrellas, oil on canvas, Diptych 150 x 360cm, 2017

This recent work by Chloë is to “evoke a sense of exotic escapism, whilst commenting on our inherent compulsion to bring nature indoors.”

In this work, Chloë explores the natural landscape, from the intricate patterns and “the wilds of one’s imagination”. The work “reflects on how we inhabit space through visual identity”.

“The paintings sit between experience and imagination, and consider the limits of representation in relation to the wholeness of experience”.
