I am thrilled to be able to share some inspirational art with you every Tuesday morning as Rachael's new 'Art and Creative Writer'. This week, we're showcasing the exquisite paintings of Chloe Early.
Chloe grew up in Cork, Ireland and since graduating from NCAD Dublin in 2003 has pursued her painting practice and exhibited in Cork, Dublin, London and Los Angeles. In 2004 she moved to London where she currently lives and works.
Chloe has developed a unique style working in oils on linen and aluminium panels. Her work shows a freely expressed almost graffiti style mixed with finely painted representational imagery which creates a dream-like tension between the real and unreal. "Early aims to layer motifs and meanings, using imagery from a range of sources, her own photographs, magazines, books, the internet and travel ads to create paintings whose meaning shift and blur like a troubled dream."*
She cleverly combines graphic, urban scenes with beautifully rendered colour palettes and eye-catching compositions which depict many layers of meaning. Chloe's website shows her current work and details her forthcoming exhibitions - a talented and skilled artist to inspire your Tuesday! More next week! Justine x
