Chloe Early – Boundary

August 21, 2009 Art, Contemporary 1 Comment

From her recent showing at Kinsey/Des Forges gallery. 

Chloe Early aims “to reveal something about the gulf between the way we live and dream about living.”

Early’s latest series of work utilizes vibrant oils on canvas – although she is known for her progressive use of oil on alumnium as well – to layer contemporary subjects with transfressive states of reality, examining the myths of eternal illusiveness that blur the line between authenticity and prototype. Frequently, her characters gaze away from the viewer, creating a shift of perspective to provide a glimpse into the surrounding, fantastical landscape as if through someone else’s eyes. These figures – whether lone divers, herds of zebras or couples on holiday – always carry an air of oblivion while nevertheless hinting at conflicting themes of apocalypse and redemption. Evoking the glamour and escapism of a Fitzgerald novel, adds Early, “the characters seem to languish in a forgotten dream world of innocence, excess and desire haunted only by the possibility or knowledge that their dream will fragment.”

I can identify with that.
