Chen's work has been exhibited and published internationally. In 2015, she earned the prize of Three Shadows Photography Awarsd, China's most prestigious photography contest. In 2014, she was awarded the LCC/Photofusion Prize. Meanwhile, she was shortlisted for the Athens Photo Festival Photobook Exhibition and on the finalists of Barcelona International Photography Awards BIPA. Recently, she was selected in the list of 20 Chinese Emerging Artists You Should Know published on Artsy.

Chen's practice is tied to a natural, oriental aesthetic, influenced by Western abstract art and oriental philosophy. Photography is a personal tool for Chen, used to question broad concepts that migrate from the personal to the philosophical realm. Her artwork for this Insights Exhibition focuses on the combination of photography and printmaking, a combination of techniques used to explore beneath the surface of things by simplifying and abstracting; an approach aimed at reviving spiritual awareness and intuition before entering the symbolic nature of what we view.
