Jasmine Chen

Jasmine Chen is a visual artist originally from Beijing, China, and is currently based in Boston. Her work is in the permanent collection of the Danforth Art Museum and has been exhibited there and at Matter and Light Fine Art, the Jackson Homestead Museum, and elsewhere. It was also featured in a solo exhibit at the New Art Center. She has a B.A. from Harvard and PhD from Brandeis and studied art independently.

In her residency, Chen plans to make a set of six 30" x 40" oil paintings. She also plans to make a video incorporating the environment around the studio as well as personal explorations in search of her identity as a bi-culture diasporic artist. She plans to write with a typewriter, and the paintings and writings will become source material for the video.
