'Ways of Seeing'- A Solo Exhibition, Museum of East Asian Art




Photographs Amelia Stewart

Ways of Seeing – Drawings by Chloe Regan

For the many visitors coming to the Museum of East Asian Art, objects in the museum’s collection may appear exotic and unfamiliar.  It is nevertheless possible to appreciate the beauty of foreign objects without knowing much about their history or cultural context.
The Museum has worked with illustrator Chloe Regan, who graduated from the Royal College of Art with a MA degree, to explore different ways of seeing an object.  Looking from different angles and observing details, standing from a distance as well as sitting close to the cabinets, Chloe Regan has created a series of drawings showing how she engages with unfamiliar works of art by focusing on their shape, the effect of light and shade as well as surface decoration and texture.

'Journeys- Imagined and Real'

I am continuously observing and drawing.
I capture people, places, objects...
This summer I am starting a new body of work with the narrative theme:

'Journeys- Imagined and Real'

I am creating large paintings and prints.
I will develop these from drawings I have made, these are stored in 100 sketchbooks on shelves in my studio. I will also make new works as I travel in Italy this summer. 

To start my project, here are two original drawings of chairs I am screenprinting this week to create limited edition prints to sell.
