A RISD friend, Chloe Sells, is exhibiting her new photographic collection, Senescence, at the Michael Hoppen Gallery starting tomorrow! If the exhibit wasn't all the way in London, the DFM team would definitely be there in person - Chloe's new work is absolutely stunning. From Wall Street International Magazine:
"Each of the works is a unique analogue C-type print, handmade by Sells using conventional negatives overlaid with colour and patterns in the darkroom, subverting the tradition of the meticulously created tableaux. The darkroom process itself is physical, dynamic and time-consuming, constituting a further mapping of the journey. The artifice created through unusual colour and warped light is used to heighten tension between the familiar and the exotic. Image fragments and oddly cut prints have been sketched and painted upon so that each outcome is unique."
Congratulations on the exhibit, Chloe! Click here to visit the Chloe Sells website to see more of her work.
