Elaine B. Chao is a hybrid traditional-digital artist working in Queens, NY. She earned her B.A. in Art from Rutgers University, NJ in 2013. Digital printmaking forms the foundation of her practice. She composes paintings using traditional means and imports them into image manipulation programs to blend layers, apply filters, and run actions. Abstraction is her primary mode of expression in that it allows her to experiment with color beyond form and line. Ancient Chinese art, Hans Georg Gadamer's theory of art, Paul Ricoeur's theory of texts, and the work of Gerhard Richter and Paul Klee inform her work.
She currently exhibits with Solas Studio and Pictor Gallery in New York, NY.
