Liaung-Chung Yen

(United States)

Liaung-Chung Yen was born and raised in Taiwan and his jewelry and artistic aesthetic is influenced by both Chinese culture and art. By using metaphor in his design, he thinks of his jewelry as small expressions of art, desire, wit or sensuality. He also sees it as small sculptures, documenting the time and the emotion. The work is not to mean to isolate specific meanings, rather suggest a moment of thought where stillness, beauty and illumination can peacefully coexist.

Liaung-Chung received his Master of Fine Art at SCAD, Savannah College of Art and Design in 2001.  Prior to this he studied at the National Taiwan Academy of Art and the Taiwan Provincial Handicraft Research Institute.

He features in the Metalsmith magazine Exhibition in Print 2007, 9 publications from the Larks Book’s 500 series, Art Jewelry Today 2, etc. He has participated in a number of exhibitions, including The International Expositions of Sculpture Objects and Functional Art (SOFA), Metal Inclinations 2, “Touching warms the Art” in Museum of Contemporary Craft in Portland, Oregon, Cheongju International Craft Biennale in Korea, “Recycle Design Prize” in Germany and “Lagd i verden(Made in the world)” for the National Museum of Art, Design and Architecture in Norway.
