Artist Ellen Chuse

Ellen Chuse

Brooklyn, NY, USA


American, b. 1946   —   Ellen Chuse lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. After receiving her BFA from the Philadelphia College of Art and MFA in Sculpture from Queens College, CUNY, she spent a year in Italy on a Fulbright Fellowship in 1972-73. She has been an active participant in the Gowanus Arts community for over 20 years and is a member of the 440 Gallery in Brooklyn where she shows regularly. Over the years Chuse’s work has focused on exploring organic forms in nature - particularly the ways in which they reflect and echo one another in widely varying scale and context - creating an ambiguity which challenges the viewer to bring personal associations and experiences to each piece. Moving between representation and abstraction the work explores landscape and the body in deeply personal ways. From hand built ceramic clay sculpture in the 1970s to working exclusively on paper in a variety of media, Chuse values the intuitive process in all her work and especially in the emotional resonance of deeply saturated color. In recent years Ellen Chuse’s work has been shown in Brooklyn at the 440 Gallery, the Kentler International Drawing Space, Site:Brooklyn and the Established Gallery. Her work was included in the Art On Paper Fair and Gallery MC in Manhattan, and the Cheongji Museum in Cheongji, Korea. In January 2021 she will have her 7th solo show at the 440 Gallery where she has been a member since 2007.
