Chen enjoys centering her theme on “Nature” and makes creation by use of hard material such as stones, presenting its organic vitality as well as the feminine quality of “tender and beauty.” She was once selected as the ambassador of art diplomacy, and her creations of public art were presented domestic and worldwide. Below are the three main ideas of her creation:
1. Thoroughly overall consideration of the interrelationship between public artworks and their surroundings. According to the artwork, the location should be set up first and both of the necessity and related points should be considered so that artwork could match its character. Putting emphasis on visual extension from the work, and its related outer surrounding or landscape is essential--from its dimension, proportion, color, materials to its additional facilities--which may get access to visual and psychological beauty and comfort. The artwork should be completed in a perfect fusion with its surrounding environment.
2. The relation between artwork and people. The essence of public art is to bring public space with a sense of beauty in life in consideration of overall security of the work as well as the sense of beauty visually, psychologically and spatially. It is necessary to provide comfort to the visitors and then, public space becomes a part of living quality. Nothing is better to close to both of nature and real contact with people than closing to art. Therefore, how to draw interests from people with different ages and how to elevate art and to initiate the dialogues with public art depend on the artwork which delivered the charm of the sculptor.
3. The relation between artwork and creator. Despite of leaps of changes by time, space and environment, essentially, Chen adheres to her own ideas of creation -- to create artistic content that is relevant to local culture and characters, so that her work may represent the spirit of era as well as its historical meaning.
