JASON CHEN: TISSAGE DE PHOTOS A LA MAIN


🇫🇷 Jason Chen est originaire de Guangzhou, en Chine. Il a reçu son BFA en animation de l'Université de Arts en 2008. Jason est un photographe basé à Philadelphie spécialisé photographie de mode, éditorial et alternative. Il est le co-fondateur de Paradigm Gallery + Studio et Juggling Wolf (un film et studio de production d'animation). Son oeuvre a été exposée dans des galeries et des lieux tels que: Paradigm Galerie + Studio, Antler Gallery, The Print Center, Gristel Gallery, Crane Arts, The Light Room, Trust Gallery, au Kimmel Center et Commerce Square. En 2012, Jason a réorienté son attention sur le tissage de photos. Il a commencé à utiliser deux images distinctes de la même personne, prises chacune à quelques secondes l'une de l'autre, puis les a tissés ensemble. En raison de son expérience dans le cinéma et l'animation, Jason expérimente des façons d'incorporer une "Quatrième Dimension" - le Temps - dans son travail. La série de photographies tissées à la main de Chen étudie la notion de dualité et les perspectives esthétiques. Plutôt que d'un souci de structuration qui caractérise une grande partie des tissés en art, Chen utilise le processus de tissage pour déconstruire et reconstruire l'image. / Instagram

🇬🇧 Jason Chen is originally from Guangzhou, China. He received his BFA in Animation from the University of Arts in 2008. Jason is a Philadelphia based Photographer specializing in Fashion, Editorial, and Alternative Process Photography. He is the Co-Founder of Paradigm Gallery + Studio and Juggling Wolf (a film and animation production studio). Jason’s work has been displayed in galleries and venues including: Paradigm Gallery + Studio, Antler Gallery, The Print Center, Gristel Gallery, Crane Arts, The Light Room Gallery, Trust Gallery, Kimmel Center, and Commerce Square. In 2012, Jason shifted his long-running focus on dry plate tintypes to a new process: photo weaving. He began using two separate images of the same person, each taken within seconds of each other, then wove them together. Because of his background in film and animation, Jason experiments with ways to incorporate the “Fourth Dimension” - Time - into his work. Photo weaving allows him to do this by exploring movement, process, and mutation. Chen’ series of handwoven photographs that investigates the notion of duality, interrogating the liminalspace between aesthetic perspectives. Rather than a concern with patterning that typifies much of wovenartwork, Chen utilizes the process of weaving to deconstruct and reconstruct the photographic image. / Instagram
