Talking Back and Together: Jenny Chen

Friday, February 18, 11 am
Facebook Live

The AGO and Workman Arts are partnering to empower artists to share their personal artwork and artistic practice. By creating a series of artistic videos which will premiere on the AGO’s Facebook page, they are taking up themes of mental health awareness and advocacy in art galleries and museums.

Workman Arts is a multidisciplinary arts organization promoting a greater understanding of mental health and addiction issues through creation and presentation. Workman Arts supports artists with lived experience through peer-to-peer arts education, public presentations and partnerships with the broader arts community.

Jenny Chen

Jenny is a visual artist living in Toronto. She makes art to process information about the world around her while raising questions about existentialism and spirituality. Her work uses symbols to create mystical environments inspiring viewers to wonder about life beyond the material world. She graduated from OCAD University  in 2016 with a major in Drawing and Painting and a minor in Illustration. Since then, Jenny has worked mainly in watercolour, pen and clay.

Artist Jenny Chen talks about the work she has made in the past three years. She covers her inspiration and creative processes across multiple mediums. She emphasizes pattern making in her work. At the end of the talk, she demonstrates that you can create your own pattern drawing at home.
