Sunny Moxin Chen / 陈莫新

b.1996

陈莫新1996年出生于俄罗斯莫斯科,从小在莫斯科和中国黑龙江省两地生活,小学到中学成长于北京。在位于加州圣何塞的山谷基督高中完成学业后,她移居到氛围截然不同的波士顿。本科在麻省艺术设计学院双修绘画与交互媒体专业,2022年研硕士毕业于波士顿大学纯艺术绘画专业。 陈莫新进入研究生项目那年也正是疫情开始那年。她买了一部无人机,不时用它以不同视角俯瞰、观察、并记录不同地貌。她思考着物理空间、边界、环境与个体间的关系,创作了很多混合媒介的作品,其中也包括日常生活中收集的一些“垃圾”或非传统材料。如今她几乎所有作品共有的媒介包括丙烯颜料和中国墨水。丙烯颜料符合合其创作时的速度状态,满足了短时间内叠加不同层次的需要。而使用墨则有两层含义,一层是对自己源于东方的反映;另一层则是其黑暗的质感,她会将中国墨水与其它源自西方的媒介混合,实现降低饱和度的若隐若现的存在感。
