"Think of one of your favorite landscapes- it doesn’t have to include a dramatic ocean or mountain, but even something as simple as your backyard after a storm, or the morning sun shining on the road as you drive. It is quiet, internal moments like this that fuel me. We live in this amazing world and so many little moments should be perceived as a miracle, as a work of art."
Chloe Saron refers to her pieces as Modern Romantic Landscapes. Embracing her favorite part of the Romanticism movement, she aspires to experience and understand the world through emotion and feeling. Her landscapes are born from her subconscious, fusing her memory with her perception of an idealized scene. She starts each painting with only a loose sense of a specific memory and a vision of where light will reflect. The rest transcends through many fine layers and compositional arrangements.
Though subtle, some pieces have emerged with hints of the many landscapes Chloe has witnessed - ranging from her time living in Wyoming and Colorado to her travels in Southeast Asia, Australia, and Europe to her home base in Vermont and the Adirondack Mountains.
Chloe purposely blurs or ‘fogs’ her paintings to force the viewer to see the landscape as a whole. By eliminating tight detail, the eye is not distracted by ‘this or that' in the landscape. The viewer is able to perceive the scene as a moment. She hopes that such ambiguity enables each viewer to connect with the scene in his or her own way and pull from a personal memory- a place, a feeling, or a time.
