Chloe Vallance

Chloe Vallance is a fine artist who has participated in numerous group and solo exhibitions since graduating from RMIT in 2009. Her work has been shown at Seventh Gallery, Handheld Gallery, Pigment Gallery and at First Site RMIT Union Gallery. Chloe was recognised as one of the best students from 2008's graduate exhibitions across Australia and New Zealand in a review by Art World magazine (p.146, Feb/Mar 2009).

Walking Dolls, colour pencil on timber, 2008/2010

Walking Dolls was developed as a response to an RMIT fashion show in 2007 and was further influenced from a trip to New York in 2008. It led me to consider the similarities between the models and small dolls. I was interested in capturing the simplicity of intimacy experienced by each figure, a moment at a time.

  1. Thanks Chloe, we love our new mini artwork we purchased today from the Insert Coin here machine.

    A great addition to the paint sample card we purchased from you at 'This is not a design market'.



Insert Coin Here

is a group exhibition curated by Nella Themelios & Kim Brockett. The exhibition is part of the 2010 L'Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival cultural program.

Insert Coin Here
comprises of two vending machines strategically placed in public spaces around the Melbourne CBD. Containing limited edition 'fashion objects' produced by over 60 Melbourne-based artists, the vending machines are activated when a member of the public inserts a $2 coin. The exhibition explores alternative interfaces of exchange for fashion, the mechanised system as a form of 'fashion dialogue'. More broadly, it thinks through discourses around public space and the role that fashion might play in it.
