inner feelings, outward reflections
Chloe Wigg's fluid impressionist landscapes highlight the resilience of the Australian environment and the people who inhabit it. This collection is a reflection of 2020, through the good and bad. It encompasses the resilience of our nation and resilience of its individuals.
On a personal level, Chloe started 2020 by undergoing her third neurosurgery. Complications like flying interstate and towing family along were made even harder by the rumblings of a global pandemic. Her long road to recovery was stretched by isolations and lock downs. Then into the unknown, things became worse: progressive and increasing muscle weakness and fatigue leaving her in a wheelchair, regular hospital infusions and requiring daily assistance. Chloe Wigg is the embodiment of the resilience she sees in the world. This collection is a depiction of her tenacity and spirit, all the while paying homage to those people and landscapes she admires.
Natural Resilience will be on exhibition at the Logan Art Gallery
