BioOriginally from the south of China, Suyu Chen is a contemporary jewelry artist working and living in Rochester, NY. She is an MFA candidate at Rochester Institute of Technology, Rochester, NY, USA and received a BA from Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts, China. She also had studied at RISD, Providence, RI, USA and Kunstuniversität Linz, Linz, Austria. Suyu has exhibited her works locally and nationally, and had been artist residency at Penland School of Crafts, NC. Currently, she is an adjunct instructor in the Metals and Jewelry Department teaching jewelry elective course open to undergrads at RIT, as well as continues to explore her arts in the studio.
StatementThrough composing jewelry works related to forms and marks, I explore relationships between practices and rituals, artificial objects, and their interconnection. Similarities among traditional art-making processes, industrial production, and art training I received, which all required massive and repetitive actions, led my interests towards experimental practices of combining artificial objects. It is a game between objects and myself - by keeping using the same artifact as a basic module, variation and transformation of forms have no end; All feeling and thinking will reveal on the surface subtly through layered painting and sanding with honest mistake and imperfection. My work aims to change the viewer’s perception of objects and materials through observation.
