Chloe West (b. 1993, Cheyenne) is an American artist based in St. Louis, MO. Continually inspired by European art from the Medieval and Renaissance eras, Chloe’s work is in dialogue with several tropes of the era, specifically vanitas painting and depictions of the nude figure. The artist is continuously engrossed by the history of representation, symbolism, and functions of the gaze as it relates to the human form.
