Chloe Wise seems like the coolest person. She is from Montreal and now lives and works in New York City making some of the most amusing and interesting pieces. She makes fun of everything but is also super aware of social issues. Her work is a little feminist, but not preachy at all. It is not violent or that heavy. Her work has a lot of social commentary, but not in an annoying way. I don't feel like she is yelling at society for social flaws, but she is making fun of it and it is not obnoxious, I think her work is clever and you have to be clever to make a good statement.
She is really successful. She did a series of sculptures called "Bread Bags" that are literally plastic versions of bread that she put straps and designer labels on. She also did a series making fun of tampon advertising where she made ads for things like horoscope tampons and superfood tampons. I love her work and I love how she thinks.
I think too many artists take themselves way too seriously and Chloe deals with issues but in a way that makes you think without realizing it. There is a lot of subtle commentary masked in a blatant statement. Her work feels like its not demanding anything of the viewer. I want my work to do the same. I have, in the past but not so much now, my work deals with pretty heavy-ish content. penis - jack miller. I don't want to make that blatant of a statement and I like that she is so good at dealing with everything and making it light.
I think she is so cool and I love what she does and she seems really awesome and while her work isn't super similar to mine, I really love it and it makes me happy.
I am an art student at Maggie Walker and this is the place where I talk about what we're making and what we're learning... Through this I can pour out my heart about my artistic experience.
