Jenny Chen, with chic, smooth and vivid abstract paintings, has created a representative personal style. For her, music is inseparable from creation, and musical elements make the picture full of rhythm and flow. Long-term dance training obtains creative inspiration from the moving state of nature through a high degree of mastery of the body. Through abstract painting, delicately records the changes of every moment, so that colors can automatically flow and stack on the canvas, creating a charming texture and thickness.
The artist is good at using Western art vocabulary to bring out the close relationship between her style and Chinese painting, from constantly ruminating on the bits and pieces of life to doing whatever she wants so far. Pursue a change in the creative spirit, and try to reflect the inner feelings to the real outer world with multiple media forms.
