Haijing Chen/陈海菁


b. 1997



陈海菁生于广东深圳,从小学习传统美术绘画。2019年于纽约视觉艺术学院获得插画学士学位,2022年于艺术中心设计学院获得纯艺术硕士专业。作品形式包括绘画、装置、行为艺术等,其作品关注于绘画、日常行为中的自我控制与规训,女性的自我审视等。她将当代艺术视为一种语言,一来用以交流,二来用以阐述自我。不论表达方式如何变化,作品始终关注与一些重复的、麻木的行为,通过不同的方式使观者重新思考自己行为中无意识的部分。

她的早期作品以绘画为主,善于使用烙铁、银尖笔、针管笔等不同的材料描绘精细的线条效果,在主题上关注人作为一个集体,在较长的时间维度上重复的行为对自然和自身产生的变化。在接触更为丰富的当代艺术表达手法之后,开始尝试通过更为丰富的材料、媒介,同时结合空间给作品更多维度的解读空间。在创作和学习的过程中,随着艺术家对于自我的剖析愈发深刻,她的作品中逐渐出现了对于女性的身份的探讨。近期的行为、绘画作品主题涵盖女性对于自我的规训,进食障碍,女性身体的接纳等。目前艺术家工作生活于北京,并不断通过创作,继续深挖表达方式的潜力。

Haijing Chen was born in Shenzhen, Guangdong and studied academic art painting since childhood. In 2019, she received a bachelor degree in illustration from the School of Visual Arts and received a master degree in fine arts from the Art Center School of Design. Her work includes paintings, installations and performance. She is interested in self-control and discipline in daily behavior and within the process of art making. Recently, she also focuses on women's self-examination. She sees contemporary art as a language, one for communication and one for self-expression. No matter how the medium changes, her work always focuses on some repetitive and numbing behaviors, making the viewers rethink the unconscious part of their behavior.


Her early work are mainly drawings, and she is good at using different materials such as wood burner, silverpoint, needle pen and pencils to create fine line effects. She focuses on the theme of people as a group, who have repeated behaviors in a longer time dimension, which resulted in the impact on nature and their own changes. After encounter the richer ways of expressions of contemporary art, she began to try to give her work more dimension of interpretation through richer materials and media, combined with space. In the process of creation and study, the artist's self-analysis becomes more and more profound, the discussion on the identity of women gradually appears in her works. The themes of her most recent work, focusing on paintings cover women's self-discipline, eating disorders, and acceptance of the female body. Currently the artist lives and works in Beijing, and continues to explore the potential of expression through his creations.
