About the Event
Storytelling. Art. Papercutting. If you like any one of those three, please join us for a tunnel book workshop at the Peter Bullough Foundation with artist-in-residence and book artist Jinghong Chen! Participants will be shown how to create slides of paper cuts and layer them to tell a story through a tunnel book. As X-acto blades will be used, we recommend this workshop for ages 16+. Seats are limited!
About the Artist
Jinghong Chen is a Chinese-born visual artist currently based in Providence, Rhode Island. She left her native southern China and came to the U.S. alone as a student at the age of 15. Jinghong is graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design with a BFA in Illustration.
Jinghong's work explores the shared experience of the Chinese diaspora and the longing for home while remaining in a state of limbo between the East and the West, reality and illusion. She draws inspiration from her heritage and childhood memories, particularly her personal relationships with both her direct and extended family, and how those relationships change as she grows older and lives further away. Jinghong is heavily influenced by the craft of paper cutting, which she applies in various art forms, including book art, 2D and 3D illustrations, and Installations.
Jinghong is a two-time winner of the Baker + Whitehill Student Artists' Book Contest. She is also a past fellow of the RISD Museum Contemporary Art Department. Her work has been exhibited at the Donkey Mill Art Center in Hawaii, Providence Public Gallery, RISD Woods-Gerry Gallery, Carr Haus Cafe, and the University of Rhode Island (forthcoming).
