Nominated by Harold Washington College
Chloe Perkis is a visual artist whose work explores the notion of absurdity and focuses on the brutal nature of the world. Abject figures and textures arise as focus points in her illustrations as a means to document societal observations and exercise the artist’s autonomous vision, while humor becomes the catalyst to demystify the grotesque and empower the vulnerable. Chloe is currently in the process of completing her degree at Harold Washington College.
