Caroline Wells Chandler: Close Encounters

Caroline Wells Chandler is a prolific multimedia artist best known for his hand crocheted colorful queer arenas.  Stemming out of American folk art, psychedelia, and a 1970’s feminist craft history, Chandler’s brightly colored realms explore gender, representation, and the art historical canon.  Bridging fifteen years of making by presenting two distinct bodies of work, Close Encounters is the first time that Chandler’s earliest anatomical studies are shown in tandem with his more recent crocheted figures.
