Artist Statement: Chloe Robberts

My name is Chloe Robberts. I am a 22 year old interdisciplinary artist that just finished my BA from the University of Michigan. I am an Ann Arbor raised, Christian woman that focuses on the retelling of Biblical narrative through a feminist lens. Scripture tells a tale of incredible women, sovereign under God, yet autonomous over man. These women aided in the development of redemptive history. Their stories are complicated and powerful, but are so often forgotten within Biblical canon. My work exists to begin to shine a light on biblical womanhood and the agency that has been removed from the stories of ancient women.

This collection, titled "The Development of a Thesis", follows my journey of academic events that led to my interests in these themes. What began with a graphic commission, now exists as a large-scale project still only in its infancy. What you see in this exhibit is a sampling of a project I have titled "The Biblical Bleed Through." The formula behind this work, a collection of poems, portraits, and floral abstractions, represents a proposed femme counterpart of the 12 apostles. Let us, together, rediscover the role of women within the Biblical Story.

It is with my heart that I present this work with the hopes of reimagining biblical womanhood as something beautiful and complex. Let us together, rewrite and revert back to our original meaning.

All of the love, Chloe Robberts
