Chloe McCarrick is a London based photographer and mixed-media printmaker. Initially studying fine art and art history, she went on to focus on photography and lens-based media and printmaking. After graduating from university, she moved onto lecturing in photography and interactive media.
Working in further/ higher education for almost 8 years before embarking on a full-time career as a practising and exhibiting artist on relocating to London. Best known for her circular cyanotypes, her work explores the boundless possibilities of image production in the age of modern printmaking with an aim to reinvent, recycle, redefine, experiment and preserve. Inspired by themes of natural history, influential women and science, Chloe’s work is the subject of extensive research and intrigue, resulting in a fascinating and distinctive portfolio of artworks. Freedom and experimentation are key factors in developing her personal style, through rule-breaking and fusing art forms and techniques together, taking inspiration from traditional approaches of image-making and giving them a contemporary technological twist. Female empowerment is a recurring theme running throughout her work, constructing visual narratives of the lives of extraordinary, trailblazing women – celebrating their achievements, uncovering their struggles and chronicling the stories of these often unsung heroes.
Chloe McCarrick regularly exhibits internationally, appearing for the past few years at Le Salon Nationale Des Beaux-Arts in Paris, Affordable Art Fair London and New York, and The Other Art Fair, curated by Saatchi Art, in London and Los Angeles. Other notable exhibitions include the InPrint- A celebration of British Contemporary Printmakers and Every Woman Biennial London. Her work is held in the permanent heritage collection for Le Salon Des Beaux Arts foundation in Paris. And she was nominated as a Rising Star for both Saatchi Art/ The Other Art Fair and The Crafts Council UK in 2019, 2020 and 2021.
