Fascinated by the nuances of the everyday Chloe Vallance’s current body of work is a continuation of her exploration of portraiture and her desire to capture a sense of play and visceral emotion.

‘I see my portraiture work as an archive of intimate engagements and documents of a daily practice. The aim of my work is to locate beauty – in a sense, inner sense, in essence, in experience – in the moment of contemplation and connection.’

Working in watercolour, gouache, ink and colour pencils on paper, plywood and recycled objects Vallance’s work has a sense of lightness, play and authenticity. Her works not only capture moments but also the warmth and connection between artist and subject.

Vallance has a Bachelor of Fine Arts (hons) from RMIT and is completing her Masters of Fine Arts by Research. She has exhibited widely both in Melbourne and internationally.
