Chiara No

Chiara No is a Baltimore artist who currently lives and works in Chicago, IL. She is a recent graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago’s Post-Baccalaureate program in Painting and Drawing. Her practice is to redefine and reconstruct materials by stripping them of their original purpose and cultural significance, reducing them to objects qua objects. Wholly superficial and unconcerned with wit or place, the objects lean towards an existential happiness, an emotional zone where the pieces’ essential nothingness is in fact, its content.
