Jenny Chan

Biography

Advanced Ceramics, Warwickshire College (invited maker - a pivotal moment in the career)

Jenny is interested in instantaneous human emotion and its unconscious connection with sight. The Divas are a series of figurative female sculptures and wall masks, reflecting upon our shared appearance yet individual essence.

Jenny explores this idea by starting with a blank face onto which she designs their individuality. She achieves this through the design of their clothing and decoration, inspired by different cultures, periods and fantasies. Each unique piece evokes different emotions and Jenny's work highlights how these emotions lead to our unconscious judgements of people by their appearance.

Every piece is hand built using coiling and slab building techniques, coloured using a variety of oxides, underglaze and ceramic paints.

Jenny is based in Warwick.
