Elaborating on a tradition of still life painting, jeweller Chloe Rose Taylor works to coax unfamiliar sensations into arrangements of the everyday. Recomposing a precise selection of quotidian and nostalgic themes -an extensive seashell collection, an ubiquitous soap brand, and a collection of ambiguous soft sculptures- Taylor has pursued an intuitive and haptic line of inquiry, evading an easy symbolism and pushing her works into a vibrant series of postures and forms.
Since graduating from Whitireia Faculty
of Arts in 2013 Wellington based artist Chloe Rose Taylor has quickly built a
reputation for creating electrifying installations in the field of contemporary
jewellery. Taylors work is characterised by an expressive focus on form and
playful materiality, and has been exhibited in solo and group shows, both
nationally and internationally.
