Jazz Szu-Ying Chen
Jazz Szu-Ying Chen (b. 1990) is a Taiwanese artist currently residing in London, UK. Jazz's art career debut was in 2007, with a solo exhibition called “Karnival” in the Sincewell Gallery (Kaohsiung, Taiwan). Since then, Jazz has been consistently exhibiting in both Taiwan and UK every year.
She has recently graduated from Central Saint Martin’s Fine Art BA (Honours) course and is currently studying for a Masters degree in Art & Science in the same university.
For many years, Jazz has been interested in the art and glamour of the grotesque, while avoiding the brand of 'shock art'. While intense reactions like shock are a pleasant unintended side effect of her works, the main aim for Jazz' art is for viewers to see beyond the grotesque and look directly into the sentiment and personal connections behind the veil of flourished vaginas, eviscerated intestines and like experiences.
