Caroline Lee Liu

Caroline makes drawings, photographs, and objects that investigate the space between what is objectively present and what feels emotionally present. Drawing from observation and personal experience, she tries to reframe the everyday. Her work references structures like windows, screens, and frames, as well as places of transition, like airports or her childhood home. By doing so, she tries to show how the familiar can become wonderful and the wonderful, familiar. Caroline has recently shown at Roman Susan, SITE Galleries, and Zhou B Art Center. She recently received her BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in the Advanced Painting program. Caroline is also part of the collective Quilt Buddies, as well as the publishing collective West Coast Friendship Club.
