Resin sculpture, mixed media
Angela Yanjun Chen is presenting Wipe it, 2022 a large resin sculpture that suspends a intricate arrangement of flowers and organic material. Chens piece appears to nod towards the memento mori tradition, where symbols–including flowers–are used to remind the viewer of life’s fragility and the passage of time.
