About

Studio Member since 2022

Born in 1979, Caroline Chun draws inspiration from a wide range of ideas and subject matter, from landscapes to abstraction to everyday objects. Using a creative approach guided by humor and instinctual experimentation, she playfully works across painting, drawing, collage, and sculpture. Chun explores the boundaries of art-making and the capacity of objects to capture a sense of mystery or surprise, often constructing clever yet sincere reproductions of her favorite objects. Her process of combining both traditional and mundane found materials – fluorescent acrylic, marker, cardboard, glitter, pastels, fabric, paper, ribbons, and bows – lends her practice a whimsical DIY aesthetic. Chun’s work was recently featured in Opening Night, a group exhibition guest curated by Liza Eilers.
