Welcome to Canvas and Crumpets. My name is Chloe and I’m an independent art journalist and curator. I’m also an avid breakfast-eater and crumpet enthusiast.
What is a crumpet? A crumpet is a breakfast pastry typically eaten with clotted cream and jam. It is very, VERY delicious.
What is art? Art is self-expression and a political statement. If we choose to engage with art, it can change our minds about the way we see the world.
Who am I? An academic. I am pursuing my Masters in History of Art at the Courtauld Institute of Art in London. I previously studied at Tufts University in Boston, where I wrote my honors thesis on the Dutch avant-garde movement, Cobra. To keep up-to-date on my academic research, follow my Academia page. To read more about my academic achievements, check out my Resume.
I am also a born and bred New Yorker who listens exclusively to disco. I grew up acting in the city, and I’m still flexing my vocal chords at open mics. You can read more about my performance experience in my Acting Resume.
I believe that living an artistic life is the key to intellectual and emotional fulfillment. Here you will find exhibition reviews, interviews with artists in their studios, and my musings on related fields like fashion. I hope to instill within you the desire to think theoretically, and the urge to make something with your hands. (If the latter comes to pass, I have multi-media tutorials to get you started).
