Chloe Valance ‘A Moment at a Time’ @ Area

28 09 2009

After seeing her lovely work at Hatch recently [post], I popped in to see Chloe Valance‘s solo exhibition ‘A Moment at a Time‘ at the Area Contemporary Art Space in Fitzroy recently.

Exhibition media states: “The tension between human figures and their environmental context is an underlying theme in this project, as is the simplicity of intimacy experienced by a figure, together or alone, a moment at a time.

The drawings are variously done on paper, timber and over the top of cut/recycled materials from other works of Chloe’s. There is a mixture of scale, and I particular like the smaller works where you physically need to get close to decipher the drawing and see the detail.

I also like another excerpt from the exhibition media: “the ambivalence between solitude and community, the ambiguity of seriousness and play, and the linking of opposite ideas where limits are questioned“.

I’d usually include a link to the gallery website, but the only one I could find hasn’t been updated since 2007 or so, which is not good. So instead, all the necessary details are on the invitation below.
