BIO: Since childhood, Jennifer Chin has been asking "Why" and "What if." Her quest to find the deeper meaning hidden beneath a slurry of "because" led her to the technology sector. Computers work along a golden thread of logical and defined connections. She observed that humans struggle with the nuance "do what I want" versus "do what I ask." Exploration of this discord through paint, collage, and printmaking has been her inspiration ever since. There is logic in the chaotic network around us, and it is beautiful.
Jennifer Chin was born in Seattle, WA. Painting and collage are Jennifer's primary focus. She also hand pulls relief and monotype prints as well as enjoys the immediacy of Instagram. In 1995 Jennifer completed a BA in Art from the University of Washington. Her paintings and prints are included in private collections across the US. Jennifer currently lives and works in Tacoma, WA USA.

Planned compositions start from the inside out. Each layer influences the next. Yet even with the best of plans, deep pours of acrylic shift and slide. Chance creates cracks and unexpected textures. Gravity directs individual pigment particles to swirl and bleed. Beauty emerges; not from curated perfection, but evolves from decisions made to tame chaos and bend it to my will.
There is always logic to be found in the chaos around us.
