Chloe Wilwerding (she/her) grew up in a Catholic community in Nebraska, where she was given definitive answers to questions about who we are, why we are here, and how we should live. As an adult, her multidisciplinary art practice centers on these same types of primordial questions about human experience, but explores the complex and varied ways to approach them. Through textiles, collage, digital art, and printmaking, Chloe investigates how we understand what it means to be human. Climate change and digital culture feature in her work as two challenges that require redefining what it means to be human and repositioning ourselves in relation to our environments.
Chloe holds her MFA in Printmaking from Rhode Island School of Design and her BA in Political Science and Studio Art from Middlebury College. She lives in Steamboat Springs, Colorado with her mini Aussie, Odin.
