Biography

In keeping with her eclectic sources of inspiration—ranging from photographs of birds and medieval friezes to the biblical love poem “Song of Solomon”—Anne Chu works across media to produce diverse, evocative works that evoke mythology, ritual, and fables. Never literal, her sculptures, prints, paintings, and photographs are suggestive and imaginative musings on her chosen subjects. Chu's expressive sculptures of bears and bears’ heads, for example, reflect her interest in the terracotta warriors of China.
