Anne Chu Art

ANNE CHU (USA, 1959–2016)

Anne Chu was born in New York City. She studied at the Philadelphia College of Art and received an MFA from Columbia University.


Chu’s work blends elements of Eastern and Western influences, creating a strong dichotomy between that which is modern and ancient, abstract and figurative, unknown and fantastical. Her art serves as a liaison to alternate realms of artistic thought and expression, particularly through the many techniques she employs to seamlessly unite form, content and color in a seemingly effortless, cohesive manner. Although she was primarily a sculptor, creating monumental works from wood, ceramic and papier mâché, Chu also made formidable attempts at watercolors and, in particular, monotypes. In these media she chose the themes of landscapes, castles and knights, creating large and unique works that, at first glance, seem abstract but thematically contain figurative elements that form a connective thread through her work. The handmade Japanese Kozo papers and the organic earthy tones of the inks enhance the fluidity and gracefulness of the prints.


Ms. Chu was the recipient of the 2001 Penny McCall award and was awarded grants from the Anonymous Was a Woman Foundation and the Joan Mitchell Foundation. Her work has been widely exhibited, including at the Dallas Art Museum, the Berkeley Art Museum and the Indianapolis Museum of Art.
