Chloe McKim is known for her thought provoking ceramic installations. Graduating in 2016 from the Alberta College of Art + Design, Chloe has continued pursuing her passion of studio practice ever since. Studying in Norway in 2014, Chloe has showcased her work internationally as well as nationally. Focusing on still lives, Chloe recreates moments that have surfaced in her life, which may have been taken for granted at the time they occurred. She creates a body of work showing the longevity of memory objects, deliberately emphasizing when fumbled or held carelessly they can instantly shatter.
The art that I create is a reflection of the person that I have become, the artist that I have evolved into. Being influenced by the everyday experiences we share and the aftermath they have towards us heavily influence’s the body of work that I create. I like to discuss the concept of how we may hide certain feelings or expressions as a way of protection against the outside world. Using a palette that addresses the distortion of memory I collect and recreate mundane objects, expressing the relation these moments have on us as they pass through our daily lives.
