About the Work
Multi-disciplinary artist Chloe Wise has a human-centered approach to her prolific oeuvre of paintings, sculptures, installations, and video work, employing sensuality and humor to explore the cognitive dissonance required to exist in a globalized world.
Our new collaboration After Bernini, inspired by Gian Lorenzo Bernini’s famous work The Rape of Proserpina, features a close crop of pivotal mythological drama, abstracting the iconic moment until only movement remains. Set against geometric panels of mid-century colors, the gesture takes on a graphic quality through Wise's sparse, elegant lines.
After Bernini is a fresh example of Wise’s forays into functional art, wherein intimacy and wit become safeguards against external seizures.
Chloe Wise (b. 1990, Montreal) has held solo exhibitions at Almine Rech (New York, London, France), Blouin Division (Montreal, Toronto), Galerie Sébastien Bertrand (Geneva), HEART Herning Museum of Contemporary Art (Herning, Denmark), and The Journal Gallery (New York), among others. Select group exhibitions include presentations at Galerie Sébastien Bertrand (Geneva), Magenta Plains (New York), Kasmin Gallery (New York), Warhol Museum (Philadelphia), Blum and Poe (Los Angeles), Marianne Boesky Gallery (New York), Gagosian (New York), and Carl Kostyál (Malmö, Sweden) among many others. Her work is included in The Julia Stoschek Collection (Dusseldorf), The Hammer Museum (Los Angeles), and National Gallery of Canada (Ottawa). Wise lives and works in New York.
