About Chloe Rosser's works
Chloe Rosser is giving an innovative contribution in the fields of Conceptual and Figuration. Conceptual art is arguably not as clear and easily defined as other art movements, and can often spark intense reactions in the viewers. By nature, Conceptualism puts an emphasis on the strategies and research that go into the creation, making the concept of an artwork its most essential feature, rather than the actual finished product. Although the movement emerged in the mid 1960s, simultaneously across Europe and America, its forefather Marcel Duchamp had paved the way back in 1917, with his controversial artwork Fontaine. Conceptual art denies the traditional mediums, and strives to place the artwork in the realm of ideas - rather than that of material constructions. Some of the most prominent figures of Conceptualism include artists such as Sol LeWitt, Lawrence Weiner and Yoko Ono.
Figurative art has been around since the most primitive stages of visual arts, and encompasses any form of modern art which references the real-world or the human body, in opposition to Abstraction. Figurative art embraces a significant multitude of styles, thus remaining a truly innovative and major category in which artists created critically acclaimed masterpieces, such as Pablo Picasso’s painting Les Demoiselles D’Avignon, or Paul Cézanne’s The Bathers.
Chloe Rosser's work has most recently been exhibited at Elizabeth Houston Gallery in New York (12 February 2020 until 28 March 2020) with the exhibition Function. Chloe Rosser's only other exhibition is SHE, which took place at Elizabeth Houston Gallery in New York, the United States (09 October 2019 - 07 December 2019).
At the moment on Artland, seven of Chloe Rosser's works are available to purchase.
Historical Context of United Kingdom
The United Kingdom has been an important hub for artistic production for centuries. While it accumulated considerable wealth from colonisation and the rise of its Empire, it was also unsheltered from the cultural influences of other countries and continents. Throughout the contemporary era, Britain had been largely eclipsed by the status of its European neighbours on one side, and of the United States on the other. But in the late nineteenth century, Britain became an important centre in the development of the avant-garde. This includes the Arts and Crafts Movement, a major movement setting the tone for artist-led organisations, groups and organisational co-operative types that would later develop into a template of sorts for bohemian artists movements of the Twentieth Century. Major artistic movements in British modernism include for example Vorticism, involving artists related to the Bloomsbury group. Some noteworthy British artists of the modern and contemporary period include Stanley Spencer, Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud, Leon Kossoff, Frank Auerbach, David Hockney, Bridget Riley, Paula Rego - and in more recent years the YBA generation led by Damien Hirst, Tracey Emin, Marc Quinn, Chris Ofili and others.
