Chia En is a young female artist, combined with a soft, modest, and elegant temperament creates romantic aspects of nature. During her creative career, she has adhered purity and a simple and carefree attitude in her paintings and ceramics and has enriched her life to which an artistic manner is applied. Her work, portraying Taiwan’s mountain and flower scenery, transfers the stretch of the field in her heart out beyond where the eye can see, and then combines it with the sense of touch, feeling the warmth and moistness that has filled the earth.
Chen elegantly combines the warmth of pottery with her previous training in painting and transforms images into three-dimensional works. In her work, the textures and colors allow viewers to feel the richness and leniency of the earth. Without complicated decorations, Chen’s works display a sense of peace that is born from a self-reflection, an aura of tranquility amid countless thoughts and ideas. With simplicity and elegance, the works of Chen Chia-En portray a natural image of the inner landscape. She explained, “Abstraction is not the absence of material, but a realm that is both virtual and authentic, profound and peaceful. It evokes the innermost quality of mankind that originated from the chaos of antiquity.”

Artistic Ideals
Originality is the basis of life.
Tactile feel is created through intuition.
Quiescence makes restless pursuit possible.
Revelation leads to universal reconciliation.
The vast plains in my heart grow upon endless rocks,
It’s flowing greenery encouraging me to move forward.
This vast open wildness of the heart has no boundaries, as if it’s an ocean.
