Chloe Ashley @ The New Art Gallery, Walsall
16 August 2016 - 13 November 2016
In June 2016, the artist Chloe Ashley was selected from an open competition in the West Midlands, on the theme: The Building as Material to develop a new body of work from the Gallery’s 1st Floor Artists’ Studio, taking inspiration from the forms and materials that identify the building. Ashley works with analogue photography and her practice is often driven by a response to site. She is using her residency to photographically respond to the Gallery architecture, utilising a 35mm film camera to produce silver gelatin prints, for which she is designing a variety of experimental display structures. These structures will utilise the raw materials of The New Art Gallery Walsall building (concrete, leather, Douglas fir, walnut, terracotta, stainless steel) and reference the signature forms and views that identify the Gallery architecture.
