August 6 - October 1, 2022
From Box13 Art Space:
“My work responds to the effects of disability on my personality and studio practice. Being in a constant state of recovery forces me to reexamine the way I work regularly as I continue to move forward (or maybe sideways). I am interested in where this experience intersects with queer identity and how these discrete yet intertwining perspectives allow me to explore supposed contradictions. During this time, I find my work is between fibers and printmaking, with a strong emphasis on the combination of multiple techniques. This approach allows me to fully express my ideas while also being mindful and compassionate towards my body, which continues to amaze me with its resilience.
Chelsea Clarke is a recent graduate of the University of Kentucky in Lexington, where she investigated the intersections of various media such as print, fibers, ceramics, and drawing. Her conceptual practice mirrors this multidisciplinary approach as it focuses on discrete yet intertwining identities and their effect on her daily life. She attended undergraduate at Virginia Commonwealth University where she also finished a post-Baccalaureate degree in Nonprofit Management, which she plans to use in order to found a radically accessible artist residency. As a Houston native, she is thrilled to return to her hometown and become a part of Texas’ vibrant artistic community.”
