2017 Oct Artist 十月艺术家 Chloe Po
Born in Singapore in 1996, Chloe Po is a multidisciplinary artist working in the discourse of fragility within time and relations through organic sculptures and paintings. Influenced by the tension between forms and formless nature of memory, ephemerality, and existentialism, her works suggest the distinctive and poetic nature of frozen time. Initially trained in the discipline of painting, her initial works took on a painterly approach. Having been first introduced to the medium of watercolour, her paintings took on an expressive nature, often filled with drips, strokes, and splashes.
'Sentiments' is a series of Sculptures that draws a subtle relationship between the fleeting nature of existence with that of time. Acting as figments of personal objects that the villagers were washing by the river, the series explores the notion of memory and it's intangibility due to repetition and routines of daily life. Plastic is a material that is easily disposed of, similar to that of time and memories that pass by fleetingly. Hence, the series uses the material of plastic as a dimension of memory, fleeting and subtly resisting against loss. The Colour blue used in the series explores the blue hues of blue china. It thus acts as a reflection of historic symbolism; fusing history within that of memory.
