Bio

Jingxin Geng is an visual artist living in Norway. She was Born in 1975 in Nei Meng Gu, China, grew up in Beijing and later studied in Norway. Geographical changes led Geng to receive art education in both countries, in traditional figurative painting and drawing, and contemporary art practice. Her exploration of contemporary art making began while she was a student at the National Art Academy in Oslo (2003 to 2008). Geng practices with different media and ways in art making, helped her to liberate her mindset and revealed her true vision upon things. Later, when looking back on her tracks in art, she realized her way of expressing was through a repetitive method. Geng’s current art practice is based on multi layered paper cutting and collage. Lines and geometric forms are often the basic elements she uses to construct her paper cutting.
