Giant Robot is proud to host Salvage, an art show by Caroline Hwang.

Raised in Southern California, Hwang graduated from Art Center College of Design. Influenced by graphic arts, films, and music, Hwang turns fabric, quilting, and painting into collages that reflect the complexities of human relationships. Currently residing in Brooklyn, Hwang has been featured in Paper Magazine and Swindle Quarterly, and has contributed illustrations to The New York Times, Bust Magazine, and HOW Design. Recently, she was part of the Giant Robot-curated To The Masses group art show at the Scion Space in Los Angeles.

Hwang’s latest work integrates the craft aesthetic of quilting and sewing with nautical themes such as color-block flags. As the title implies, Salvage is about searching for something lost and preventing further loss in adverse circumstance: picking up the pieces–glimmers of hope, pieces of oneself–and starting anew.

The opening reception will take place from 6:00 – 10:00 on Saturday, January 12.

Reception: Saturday, January 12, 6:00 pm – 10:00 pm
