Caroline Liu

Caroline Liu, "Mid South," 2015, Oil and acrylic on canvas, 48” x 60”

Caroline Liu is an artist that is shaped by a peculiar concussed experience that involved her tiny head and a solid wood door.

Her short-term memory never fully recovered and her work became a therapeutic practice and vehicle for holding onto memories and emotions she would otherwise forget. As a person with irreparable memory loss, she is constantly exploring feelings and ideas of identity, vulnerability, and loss. Her work is a personal pilgrimage in finding herself and discourse.

She moved from the Land of Enchantment, otherwise known as New Mexico, to Chicago in 2013 and has been living/working in the city ever since.
