chloe grove, born 1981, is a british artist based in berlin, germany




i work predominantly large format in coloured pencil using methods developed to  challenge the traditional use of this medium.

evoking geological formation and fossilisation, a study of pressure and time, i use an unorthodox technique where layers of colour are built up and blended until the paper reaches the point of saturation and the surface achieves a burnished sheen.

inspired by physics principles, space exploration, meteorite and digital aesthetics, i attempt to  reimagine what i see in an abstracted, decelerated alternative reality. 

my work has been exhibited in germany, uk, australia, macedonia, austria and in denmark, where a selection of drawings, paintings and prints can be seen at galleri heike arndt on the island of lolland falster and at galleri heike arndt in berlin.
