Sea of Faces is a unique and challenging project, featuring portrait drawings by Hong Kong artist Chloe Ho. With her remarkable insight and attention to nuance, Chloe chronicles the human state through figure drawings and paintings, reflecting her continued investigation into the issue of self and identity.
Located between representation and self-reflection, Chloe’s collection of ‘New Portraiture’ seeks the answer to the fundamental question of how the ‘self’ has been constructed and interpreted throughout mankind’s collective history. Central to this is the concept of memories, which are often linked intrinsically to a ‘place’ – be it our home, particular buildings, or even our environment. In this way, Chloe Ho’s Sea of Faces is also reflective of the ‘global village’ concept in which the current generation seeks an understanding of their place and identity in the modern world, while there remains a sense of belonging to a distant, ancestral, but unfamiliar world.
