Sichen Grace Chen
Much like how birds scavenge for scraps to construct their nests–a place of birth and life, I was inspired by using the leftover materials, second-hand fabrics, and old clothes I had around me to create a little home of my own. In any case that I experience another displacement, I would be able to take all my dear belongings within my portable home bag and, like a bird, fly away.
Revolving around the notion of universality in specificity, my work aims to evoke genuine self-reflection, whether that be a minor change in disposition or a drastic shift in perspective. I am motivated by crafting spaces of warmth and immersive realities through traditional and digital drawing and painting, sometimes even merging these means for animation, for the enjoyment of others.
