About Liaung Chung Yen
I like to use geometric shapes, architectural elements and hollow construction forms to interpret nature. In result, the work is separated into two directions. One is toward plants, flowers, gardens and the other is rocks, minerals and landscapes. My work is also an exploration of sculpture form in jewelry. The wire structures and hollow construction forms require countless soldering process, creating strength and durability in what appears to be a fragile and delicate art jewelry piece. The inspiration comes from the landscape and the scenery of the nature. I try to create images in my work that will tell stories and express emotions. The materials that I used are mostly 18k gold, sterling silver and precious stones. The techniques include fabrication, forming, fusing, soldering and stone setting.
