Chloe received her BS from the University of Texas at Austin and MFA from the New York Academy of Art. While at the NYAA, she concentrated on painting and was awarded the Belle Artes Residency and the Chubb Post-Graduate Fellowship. Chiasson has exhibited internationally in London and Hong Kong (upcoming). A recently named finalist for The Bennett Prize, her work has been featured in Art Basel Miami BeachNew American Paintings, Artnet news, Juxtapoz Magazine, Fine Art Connoisseur, and American Art Collector.

Chiasson’s practice explores themes of self-expression and queer identity. Figures inhabit environments reminiscent of her childhood in Texas that not only include but also celebrate queer identity within its distinct cultural context. By juxtaposing images from different periods and finding unexpected resonances within these disparate moments, she challenges us to consider a rewritten narrative. Chiasson’s work is alive with symbology, autobiography, dissonances and resonances, allowing space for larger themes that reflect the varied theatre of queer life.
