Caroline Jacobson


Caroline Jacobson is a Chicago based artist who has been empowering women through her craft since dropping out of business school in 2014 to study art. She is currently studying painting and drawing at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Investigating complexities of womanhood through a contemporary lens, her paintings explore notions of female sexuality, gender performance, and body politics in popular culture. She aims to undermine and challenge the erasure of the female experience and the routine objectification of the female body throughout the history of art. An upcoming talent in the Chicago scene, she often uses close female friends and herself as subjects. Her work expands upon the voice of contemporary womanhood and represents the female figure as a sovereign source of power.
