Artwork

A woman walks through a quiet street of a colorful town wearing her red sun hat with a bouquet in her arms. Artist Laura (Yi Zhen) Chen takes inspiration from a picturesque and well-preserved old town and its enticing alleys. "It reminds me of the days of exploring old European towns by hitting the short or long narrow alleys. Getting lost in the web of those streets, then finding oneself suddenly standing in the most romantic corner."

Laura (Yi Zhen) Chen

Cary, North Carolina

Laura begins the painting process by taking multiple photographs, which she then combines and sketches into one composition. She takes a spontaneous approach to color, and often finds that her final paintings are quite different than her original intentions. As such, her color palette is vibrant and at times unexpected. Laura’s artwork is executed with stylized modernism, featuring heavy outlines and dramatic shadows. Much of her subject matter is architectural. “I especially like historical buildings in my area,” says Laura. “I am fascinated by the geometric shapes of the old buildings, their varieties and repetitions, their dramatic color contrast. To me, their simple structures have personality and dignity.” Laura works best when her studio is clean and well organized, and finds inspiration in the “miles of good paintings” hanging in the world’s great museums.
