What is the midpoint between the ordinary and the excessive? Chloe Wise’s artwork may inhabit this space. Her paintings, sculptures and film works are beautifully over the top. In her canvases filled with figures, or sculptures overwhelmed with drips and reflection, we witness an overflow of desire. Yet, at the same time, something absurd emerges in the banal. An everyday commodity slipping into a dramatic, super-sized group portrait. Beneath it all, Wise is exploring contemporary consumption, desire and politics.
