C. C. Ann Chen
C. C. Ann Chen is an artist and educator. Her work stems from architecture and landscape, exploring perceptual translations and misinterpretations of place and time. Projects range from direct observation to site-specific work, engaging landscape with an open, experiment-based approach. Recent work reflects journeys by sea to remote places in the North Atlantic and Arctic regions. Chen uses drawing and collage to examine ways of looking at and understanding landscape.
She has exhibited in Chicago and beyond, including slow gallery, Heaven Gallery, Glass Curtain Gallery at Columbia College Chicago, Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit, Research House for Asian Art, Emerge Art Fair in Washington, D.C., Zhou B. Art Center, Hyde Park Art Center, and The Franklin. Chen was a recipient of the Midwest Voices and Visions Award in 2012, and her work has been published in New American Paintings. She is an adjunct Associate Professor at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
