MASTERED: Featured Artist: Yi Ying Chen 06 July 2016

In the run up to the opening of Mastered, we’ll drawing your attention to just a few of the artists and designers who will be exhibiting their work in the show – bringing together the best work from across Nottingham Trent University’s School of Art & Design postgraduate courses.

First up: Yi-Ying Chen (Ellen), MFA Fine Art

Yi-Yeng Chen Ellen - Ember Space

Ellen is an artist who is intrigued with the colour grey. She is inspired by traditional black Chinese ink, which when diluted and applied to rice paper, produces a variety of shades of grey – soaking into the paper layer by layer.

‘Ember- Floating space’ is a performance piece, in which Ellen attempts to make invisible space visible, through wax formations in water.

Something unpredictable and uncontrollable emerges in the process of conflict; and beautiful, mountain-like spaces are created as the liquid wax cools and solidifies in the water.
