Chloe Harris' monoprints and paintings exploit the characteristics of familiar buildings she'd been influenced by in cities she has lived in, it's her interest in print which has led to the development of her style. A strong influence of abstraction complements the Exeter Prints Series and Leeds Print Series.
“I started the LEEDS PRINT SERIES 2020/2021 during lockdown. These prints had no evidence of people - reflecting the lockdown conditions. I was commuting from an Amazon warehouse working night shifts (Sept 2020) and getting off my first bus home at 5:30am, taking pictures of the city, getting to know it by night”
