Artist Statement & Bio

Jennifer Chin

Artist Statement

A planned composition starts from the inside out; where each layer influences the next. Yet even with the best of plans, deep pours of acrylic shift and slide. Chance creates cracks and unexpected textures. Gravity directs individual pigment particles to swirl and bleed. Beauty emerges; not from curated perfection, but evolves from decisions made to tame chaos and bend it to my will.

There is always logic to be found in the chaos around us.


Jennifer Chin was born in Seattle, WA.  While Jennifer’s primary focus is painting and collage, she hand pulls relief and monotype prints, and enjoys the immediacy of Instagram. In 1995 Jennifer completed a BA in Art from the University of Washington.  Her paintings and prints are included in private collections in Arizona, California, Florida, Idaho, Texas, and Washington.  Jennifer currently lives and works in Tacoma, WA USA.
