Jennifer Chen is a current student here at CSULB. She earned a Bachelor’s degree in biology and is currently going to school for her Master’s degree in Printmaking. This huge change of subjects is due to an interest Chen had in order to make her grow in a different way and see the world from other perspectives. In the fall she will be teaching her own Art 270 class with one of her friends.

Chen’s artwork is printed in 3D. She uses digital printing, masking, and monotype style. She tops of her artwork with a gloss to add a 3D effect. 

Chen’s goal is to show ecology and after disturbances in landscapes due to natural disaster. Her ideas explore the microscopic and macroscopic views and looks at cities that may be historical or monumental. Her artwork speaks by saying that even through all disaster, beauty is within and will overcome. 

Chen’s pieces were very beautiful. The colors and vibrancy pop and the glossy-ness effects really help highlight the scenes. I really enjoyed her pieces.
