Portrait of North Sydney represents the latest body of work by Brisbane-based artist Chloë Waddell.
Inspired by photos from a 2011 trip to New York, Chloë began creating her cityscapes as a celebration of the often unseen angles in our urban landscapes. She is drawn to the details: straight lines beside circles, tree branches over buildings, little sections of the whole which form a tiny puzzle piece on their own. These mixed media artworks are built through many layers of photo, drawing, painting and collage. This series of work is centered around the beautiful tree-lined streets of North Sydney.
Originally from Sydney, Chloë gained her BVA Hons from Sydney College of the Arts in 2005. Her work has been regularly exhibited in galleries throughout Australia.
Opening celebrations Thursday 24th October 6-8pm
