Chloe Sells

Maun, BW

Chloe Sells (b. 1976, USA) divides her time between two places she considers home: London and Botswana. Forever finding curiosity in the latter’s Okavango Delta, her work mediates on the human experience of place. Salt pans and swamps are recorded with large format cameras before migrating to her London darkroom, where she processes each piece by hand. Using experimental techniques – from screen printing to marking her images by hand with pen and paint – the artist combines a multitude of visual ingredients into hallucinatory results. Whilst remaining rooted in the reality of the places she documents, Sells establishes new visual perceptions of them, layering her own thoughts and emotions onto that which she captures.
