La Boutique is pleased to announce the opening of Color Me Happy: The World of Chloe Fleury beginning on April 27, 2012. After numerous artistic collaborations with La Boutique, this will be Chloe’s first solo exhibition at the gallery. In Color Me Happy, the artist will be executing her creative vision on a large-scale with a complete transformation of the gallery space. Working primarily with paper and glue, Chloe will be showing a diverse assembly of three dimensional objects including her signature bunnies and urban fashionistas, simultaneously introducing fresh and whimsical elements of her recent body of work for the very first time. An opening reception for the artist will be held on April 27th from 6-8 PM. In adherence to the vision of the world according to Chloe, lemonade and cotton candy will be served.
Chloe Fleury’s design and illustration work centers around the creation of worlds and environments. Through a colorfully prismatic lens, Chloe populates her mise-en-scene with playful aspects of both the natural and urban milieus. Seemingly commonplace objects and narratives become magical in Chloe’s hands. Rendered in saturated hues with an eye towards pared-down color blocking, her subject matter is taken from the everyday and ranges from endearing animals to girls on bikes. Sprinkled with intricately crafted adornments, the meticulous detail work in these paper sculptures highlights Chloe’s extreme facility with her own medium. Color Me Happy: The World of Chloe Fleury presents the viewer with an opportunity to step outside of reality and into a kaleidoscopic imaginary world with a fantastical landscape inspired by color and happiness.
A free, public reception will be held at La Boutique on Friday, April 27, 2012 from 6pm to 8pm.
