Memphis, TN | Painting
Chloe York, lover of all things colorful and oceanic, resides in Memphis with sculptor, Eric Quick in their shared home and studio. She received her Bachelor's Degree in Fine Arts with a Concentration in Painting and minor in Art History from Memphis College of Art. Her work deals with issues of camouflage, defense, and the exploration of beauty and what makes something pleasing to the eye.
My goal is to visually change objects and forms deemed ugly or untouchable by society to suit its standard of what beauty is, making a statement about the manner in which we decorate ourselves, covering up what is already there. My strong use of pattern and decorating suit this idea and add visual interest to the flatness and simplicity of the pieces while maintaining a focus on aspects of strong ornamentation and the exploration of what beauty is and what makes something pleasing to the eye.
