UNIQUE HAND PAINTED CONTACT PRINTS
- Prices range from £500 - £1,800 excluding framing & VAT
Michael Hoppen Gallery is delighted to announce our online summer exhibition of new works by Chloe Sells. Each of the images included is taken in and around the artist's home in Botswana and printed by hand in London, it is then worked over by hand with abstract drawings in various inks and paints, creating jewel-like unique pieces. These beautiful contact prints will be available to purchase from the Michael Hoppen Gallery website and available to view at the gallery during the summer.
Chloe Sells divides her time between her home in Botswana, Africa, where she photographs with a large format camera, and London, England, where she hand processes and prints her work. Each of her artworks is the result of her in-depth manipulation of the printing process in the darkroom, at once physical, spontaneous and deliberate. Her works are undeniably painterly and immediate, pushing the boundaries of process within the photographic medium.
Sells attended the Rhode Island School of Design, from which she graduated in 2000 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography. She received her Masters in Fine Art from Central St. Martins in September 2011. Over the last twelve years she has lived and photographed on three continents, Asia, North America and Africa, and this travel has been integral to her artwork.
