Chloe Early (born in 1980) grew up in Cork, Ireland. She graduated from NCAD in Dublin in 2003 and moved to London in 2004, where she has lived and worked since. Working in oils on linen and aluminium panel, Chloe has developed a unique style that is simultaneously lush and raw. The romantic and the gritty meet in her paintings, which tease out a distinctively poetic worldview through the juxtaposition of extremes. At their core is a sensitivity to lyrical feelings and themes – love, beauty, innocence and softness – which collide with more worldly symbols of aggression and degradation, such as bullets, bombs, urban refuse and ruins. Her paintings have been exhibited in group and solo shows in London, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Cork and Dublin.
