Carly Chubak was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. She has degrees in Physics & Astrophysics (with Honors) from UC Berkeley and spent several years as a test engineer in the optics industry, analyzing distortion in space-borne telescopes. Chubak next studied Fine Art at ArtCenter, focusing on soft sculptures and textile/fiber installations and graduating as valedictorian. Her experience in science and academia continues to inform her art practice; she focuses on research-based work, an interest in labor, and a feminist perspective. Chubak’s works are heavily analytical, emphasizing the historical and cultural meanings of materials and processes alongside more formal and conceptual concerns.
