Gemma Carlier: This Woman's Work | Chlo Elizabeth: Too Human, Not Too Human
6 Oct 2018 - 19 Oct 2018
THIS WOMAN’S WORK
In This Woman’s Work Gemma Carlier examines themes of worship, power, gendered labour, and the boundaries between devotion and compulsion. The installation consists of a circle of standing obelisks, invoking memories of pagan places of power. The obelisks are woven from wool, challenging the expectation of masculine stonework and commenting on the nature of what we consider to be worthy of reverence. The artist lives with bipolar and finds this is a driving force behind her work
TOO HUMAN, NOT TOO HUMAN
In Too Human, Not Too Human, Chlo Elizabeth paints from photographic images and is interested in how visual language changes from medium to medium. Primarily she works from found black and white photographs and aims to integrate the past and the present. The photographs, dating from the 1950s-70s, offer snapshots of life in agricultural Yorkshire and Elizabeth’s paintings highlight and exaggerate implicit power structures – between adult and child, man and woman – observed from the photographs.
