Chloe says "The appeal of Orkney for an artist lies in its many underlying layers of meaning in terms of history and geological time. With landscape I have always been interested in structure, by which I mean not the conventional view of a place, but rather the fundamental formation of a landscape. In this I feel a strong influence from the British artists of the 1940s, which in Orkney combines with the components of the landscape - rocks, sky, sea, fenced fields and moorland - that have caught my attention. I explore the possibilities of reassembling these in ways true to its moods and glowing colours. The 'Grecian light' of the north still often makes me catch my breath."
