Artist Reception for Chloe York
Friday, April 7, 6-9pm
2491 Broad Avenue
April 7- May 2
OPENING: Friday April 7, 6-9pm
Chloe's 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. Her strong use of pattern and decorating suit this idea and add visual interest to the flatness and simplicity of the acrylic paintings she create while maintaining a focus on aspects of strong ornamentation and the exploration of what beauty is and what makes something pleasing to the eye.
Abstract painter, Chloe York earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with a Concentration in Painting and minor in Art History from Memphis College of Art in 2012. She has displayed her work in over fifty group and solo exhibitions throughout the mid-South and her solo exhibit, Decorators was named one of Memphis’s top ten visual art exhibits in 2013. When not working in her studio, York enjoys connecting with aspiring artists of all ages in her position of Community Education Associate at Memphis College of Art. She currently resides in Memphis with sculptor, Eric Quick and ferocious daughter, Echo in their shared home and studio.
