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

farbstift malerei - coloured pencil painting 

chloe grove works predominantly large format in coloured pencil using a method developed to  challenge the traditional use of this medium.

evoking geological formation and fossilisation, a study of pressure and time, she utilises 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 and digital aesthetics, grove attempts to depict the essence of light energy and reimagine it in an abstracted, decelerated alternative reality. 

her work has been exhibited in germany, uk, australia, macedonia, austria and most recently in denmark, where an extensive selection of drawings, paintings and prints from 2008-present can be seen at galleri heike arndt on the island of lolland falster until spring 2018.

commercial projects have included an installation for, screenprinted merchandise for anklepants, duran duran duran, private agenda and record label inversions, editorial illustrations for 39null magazine, images for fabric designs by raquel hladky, record sleeves for bintus released on shipwrec records and for rodion g.a. soon to be released on inversions records.
