Emily Chase is an artist who draws on her love of stories and her interest in the relationships between clothing and identity in her sculptural paper creations. She graduated from the University of Arkansas in 2013 with a degree in painting; that same year she was chosen as a recipient of the Windgate Fellowship Award. Her current work focuses on the ability of garments to serve as a vehicle of memory, as well as the transformative effects of illumination through paper.
