The anatomy of Jiggly Jello Sky features biomorphic forms

Emily Chen, Jiggly Jello Sky (2023). oil paint on wood. 14.5 x 21 x 3 in.

Emily Chen is a painter and jeweler from Hong Kong now based in New York. She attended Rhode Island School of Design where she pursued a BFA in both Painting and Jewelry and Metalsmithing, blending two- and three-dimensional thinking.
In attaining intersectionality between image, object, and “thing” trichotomy, she built a body of work that follows the format of a table setting to situate non-representation into reality. Placed on the wall are three paintings accompanied by three spoons that connect through formal language. The ontology of wood, metal, and painting materialize as a meal through the visual language of a dining set.
