Gravity plays a role in paintings by Irish artist Chloe Early where movement and machinery are set against a backdrop of flora and fauna. The art that is the human body acts as forms and shapes that dance or cavort across the canvas. The new series of work is a "contemporary narrative about Adam and Eve caught between the beauty of nature and the fallout of post industrialization." Early states,"In my paintings I am aiming to create a new kind of gravity where I can examine the potential for good and bad, light and dark."
Birdsong and Machine Sounds will be on view October 23 - November 10, 2010 at Corey Helford Gallery in Culver City.
