Stella Chen is a Taiwanese/Australian interdisciplinary artist, living and working in Sydney. She works across the mediums of sculpture, painting, photography, printmaking, drawing and performance exploring the legacy of lived experience with post-memory, intergenerational trauma and resilience. Stella utilises moss as a metaphorical concept for resilience, constructing a research methodology in the fields of anthropology, archeology and Eastern philosophy. Stella translates her lived experience with the aesthetic of quietness, stillness, fragility and ephemerality with a vulnerable quality, reflecting the truth in war and neoliberalism. 

 

Stella holds a MArt from UNSW Art & Design. She was the recipient for Waverley Art Prize 2016, Highly Commended for UNSW Emerging Artist Kudos Award 2015; Stella has been exhibited Internationally, including solos at Stacks Projects, AIRSpace Projects, Sydney.
