Blossoming · Impressionism

With great admiration of the work of the Impressionists in the late 19th century, Chen moved to France; where she continues to develop her own artistic research and pedagogy in Paris with a well set Nihon-ga atelier. Chen is one of the rare contemporary Nihon-ga artists in Europe, who has lived in Japan and studied under renowned Japanese masters. Chen is best known for her large scale polyptychs. These multi-paneled screens depict contemporary landscapes garnished with explosions of blossoming flowers. Her other large works also derive inspiration from nature using traditional Japanese painting techniques and materials.
