In her latest exhibition, Feathers and Wax, painter Chloe Early explores her fascination with flight. In her representations of gravity and the brief moments suspension, her figures are caught at the tipping point between soaring and falling.
These atmospheric “scenes” are set against high-contrast washes of saturated color. Early creates her large-scale montages by incorporating imagery inspired by her own photography and personal travel photos. Symmetry is created and destroyed as each work shifts between the abstract and the representational, Eden and Armageddon.
