Vincent Cy Chen is a New York-based artist who works in sculpture and installation. His work allures with its seductive forms, vibrant colors, and mesmerizing illumination. In his practice, Chen explores the connection between biology and mythology, as well as themes of sexuality, otherness, and euphoria.
Through studying exotic organisms and ritualistic objects, Chen creates a world composed of hybridized creatures, sexual taboos, and artifacts of power. This world is influenced by religious iconography, science fiction, speculative biology, and queer culture.
Chen's art oscillates between the primordial and the futuristic, challenging traditional notions of beauty and gender through intersex forms that embody both the beautiful and the grotesque.
