Chloe Chiasson

Brooklyn, NY

Artist Statement

Born in a conservative small town in Texas, Chloe Chiasson’s sculptural paintings explore sexuality and identity in environments like that of her childhood. Her depictions of queer love, friendship, and self-expression are contextualized into a world where mutability wouldn’t be necessary for survival, where freedom stretches to take on more meaning and that exchanges rigid social norms for hopeful, fluid possibility. Provided by intimate views into history as well as a personal lifetime, Chiasson’s large-scale worlds shine a light on radical love and acceptance, the open mesh of possibilities, gaps, overlaps, dissonances, resonances, lapses and excesses of meaning that constitute queerness itself.
