Chloe Piene, *1972 in the USA,
lives and works in New York and Berlin

15 available works

Chloe Piene is an artist known for the primacy of her drawing: “a transformative voice as nowhere else.”*1. Her work has been called brutal, delicate, figurative, forensic, erotic and fantastic. She is esteemed for her unique and penetrating line, anchored in bone and the peculiar language of anatomy.

Her work has made various and diverse associations with prisoners, love letters, failure, and heroic transformation. Her video and sculpture utilize the greater sensory impact of noise, time, and shadow to render the more subterranean levels of experience. Piene’s work looks to history for the use and meaning of ancient and modern material – she sculpts from wax, iron, lead and steel. Her installations make what is heavy float and what is dense, gaseous, or ghostly; Death is light, and Death is heavy; Piene forcefully accommodates both.
