Chloe Swopshire’s intuitive process uses channeling, astrology and sensing of emotions and gravity around experiences to create works which explore the complex. Her elaborate portrayal of emotions around gesture, ancestors, movement and time can be seen in vivid and overlapping hues. Chloe’s works arise from what appears from the unseen, and how she processes memories and existence.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
A self taught painter, Chloe’s works share her inner world. Gesture is followed by contemplation, revisitation, and responding to what has appeared. In the vivid colors, swirls and boldness of her brushstrokes, Chloe creates works that better represent her experience of diaspora, and the strength generated by wishing and dreaming. In exploring cardboard on paper mache, her desire to subvert the white rectangular form and respond to the hierarchy of materials and consumerism is explored in sculpture and humble attempts at forming structure.” Chloe Swopshirewas born in St. Louis Missouri. A self taught artist, she moved to New York in 2014 after studying Philosophy and Religion at Truman State University. Her current work focuses on the surreal, and makes use of vivid color in Maui, Hawaii.
