Born and raised in California, Chloe Wilson earned her BFA from the University of California at Davis in 2010. Since then she has gone on exhibit her work nationally and internationally, most recently in a solo show at the Monterey Museum of Art.
Her current body of acrylic paintings juxtaposes urban and architectural details against moody evening skies.
This body of work is inspired by the particular quality of light that the sky possesses during the transition from day to night. I find these brief, daily moments interesting because of how they precipitate both perception and introspection. This peculiar, hybrid experience has sustained my practice for the past two years. I collect reference photos from my daily commute and then transcribe these moments into paint. Any degree of realism that is attained is the accidental byproduct of an attempted divorce from self-expression.
