New York-based Canadian/Chinese artist Sougwen Chung is an experimental artist with a background in fine art, digital and interactive media. Her work focuses on “transitional edges”- mainly the interaction between hand-made and machine-made, the performative with digital and the intuitive to the technical. She uses traditional art tools as well as digital mediums; paper and black ink, canvas and paint, charcoal and cloth, magnets, steel, rods, LEDs, wood, film acetate, silk, Photoshop, Illustrator, Cinema4D, Processing, nano-controllers, electric violin, Ardiuno, projectors, mad mapper, etc. Her work spans from installation, scupture, still image, drawing and performance.
Her work explores the intersection of organic and technology as well as shifting between what is real and what is virtual. Her style is abstract and incredibly detailed. She balances delicate lines or flourishes while maintaining a austere and mesmerizing feel.
I would love to buy a drawing from her. Her work is absolutely captivating to me. Thank you Sougwen for joining 7E. We’re honored.

“Landscapes of great wonder and beauty lie under our feet and all around us. They are discovered in tunnels in the ground, the heart of flowers, the hollows of trees, fresh-water ponds, seaweed jungles between tides, and even drops of water. Life in these hidden worlds is more startling in reality than anything we can imagine. How could this earth of ours, which is only a speck in the heavens, have so much variety of life, so many curious and exciting creatures?” -Walt Disney Company
