Caroline Wayne (b. 1984) is a graduate of The School of The Art Institute of Chicago and has a practice based in Brooklyn, New York. In meticulously beaded sculptures, large-scale marker drawings, and creative non-fiction, she explores her own personal narrative as a survivor of childhood sexual abuse using embellishment, rhythm, and levity, to render a dark reality more easily accessible to a broader audience. Wayne is a 2020 Hopper Prize finalist, a 2017/2018 Fellow at A.I.R. Gallery where she has held two solo exhibitions, and her work has been seen in the New York area since 2017 in spaces such as The Salon at The Wing SoHo, Sotheby’s Institute, and SPRING/BREAK Art Show. She has been interviewed by Cultbytes, Maake Magazine, Eazel, and covered by various publications including Untitled Magazine, ELLE DECOR, and Artnet. She will be a 2022 spring artist-in-residence at Wassaic Projects, NY.
