Katie Chung is a Chicago based artist that creates drawings, prints and sculptures. Her work shares a narrative of a first generation Korean American woman. Sewing, printmaking and drawing are the processes she uses to create personal anecdotes. She constructs formal compositions from personal fugitive materials. The techniques she uses display gestures of constraint, immediacy and repetition.
Katie Chung earned her BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2014. Shortly after, she became resident artist at Lillstreet Art Center from 2015—2016. In 2017 she became a member of Candor Arts, a small press that publishes and produces artists books about life, learning and healing.
