Chloe Chiasson is a New York City-based artist raised in Port Neches, Texas. Chloe received her Bachelor of Science in Health Promotion with a minor in Psychology in 2016 from the University of Texas at Austin and then began to pursue art shortly after. Chloe is now a Master of Fine Arts candidate at the New York Academy of Art where she is studying painting. She lives in Brooklyn and makes work in Manhattan.

My passion is art and people. My interest is in the people who are in between: in between worlds, in between genders, in between countries and borders. My position “in between” has me defined by, trapped in, resisting and breaking free from the complex cultural debates of sexuality, gender, and subjectivity. My work is a rejection of the mutual exclusiveness of masculinity and femininity in favor of a simultaneous coexistence, focusing on the process through which we come to find our authentic selves and the struggles that arise as we assert those selves within constraining environments. "What are you?" I am a woman, and I am using a language and culture that is given to be masculine. I am invading this field and claiming it for my own use.
