"If Dreams Manifested in Reality, Would You Have the Courage to Embrace Them?" - Jen Ting

15/09/23 - artist portrait

Jen Ting was born and raised in Pingdong, Taiwan, and currently resides in London, UK. She is an artist, painter, and installation maker. Her work reflects her fascination with the subconscious and the creatures that appear in her dreams. She uses her intuition to express her emotions, energy, and underlying thoughts, creating works that serve as a bridge between the conscious and the unconscious, inviting viewers to interpret them and reflect on their own psyche. She excels in using everyday materials for her creations, such as pastry bags, paper, recycled
cardboard, and wood, effectively merging the realms of art and everyday life.

"I let intuition guide me, and conscious thinking seems
to pause, much like dreaming. It shrouds my creations in mystery. I cannot fully comprehend
them, but I find that immediate explanations are unnecessary. I let them unfold naturally,
bringing me closer to my true self."


...using bold lines, simple black-
and-white tones, repeated patterns, creatures, and abstract elements to depict

imaginative inner world. Jen's art is filled with raw emotions and chaotic energy, all while
retaining her sense of humor.

Jen's artistic creation oscillates between
clear reality and hazy dreams, reflecting her ever-changing thoughts, blooming within a
limited space with boundless creativity.

If dreams could indeed converse with us, reminding us of the aspects we overlook
consciously, then Jen, through her art, further understands herself by showcasing her dreams.
Through her works, she invites others to converse with their dreams,
uncover hidden wounds, or rediscover forgotten happiness.
But how much courage does it
take to simply accept or even embrace these
dreams when they manifest in reality?

Through Jen's portrayal of her own dreams and the visual experience they provide,
viewers can freely immerse themselves. Sometimes, when dreams are too vast, all we can
receive are fragmented messages, but it's still a process of embracing the subconscious
through art.
