CHLOE YORK: SEE ME
Channel To Channel / 507A Hagan St. July 7 - August 25th
Birmingham, Alabama-based artist Chloe York will be exhibiting her latest abstract paintings in See Me. Chloe's work is flat and linear and always begins with a human head and shoulders. She calls the process "decorating", which is metaphorical for how the decorative nature of clothing and makeup prepare her for social interaction. The paintings are anthropomorphic portraits encrusted with oceanic and organic shapes and patterns, a nod to the decorator crab, which covers its body in bits of its surroundings for purposes of camouflage and self-preservation. Chloe York earned her BFA from Memphis College of Art in 2012. She has displayed her work in over 100 group and solo exhibitions throughout the mid-South.
