Wang Chen builds up her unique mode of artistic creation by examining two major methods, found footage and original footage, in video art. She acquires her creating inspiration and power from the reflection of her past trauma and feeling of the present state of life.
At the beginning of Wang Chen career in art practice, she regarded art more as a means of therapy to heal her early-life trauma. During the time of MFA study, the topic of Wang Chen’s artworks were most related to the traumatic memory of her childhood, her parents and her family. Alongside the exploration into her own view of the world, the theme of Wang Chen’s art-making extended from her inner world to the external real world. The focus of her art-related topics and material then spread out like ripples. She gradually laid her eyes on the present context over the past. At present, Chen does not only aim to create emotionally resonant artworks, to introspect her internal emotion and memory; Her works also interpret her perception and understanding of the world: diversity voices showed in her recent works such as feminism, LGBT, and attention of science and technology.

王忱的艺术创作主要以视频艺术为媒介,用拾得影像与原创影像为主的两种主要手段,建立起独特的创作风格。她创作的灵感和力量来源于青少年时期的创伤与对当下生活的细微感受。
在王忱从事艺术创作的初期,她将视频艺术当做治疗创伤的手段。在研究生在读时期,王忱创作的主题大多与她自己,父母和家庭的创伤性记忆有关。随著她的自我成长,她关注的焦点也从回忆转向当下,而她创作的主题也像涟漪般逐渐由她的内心世界向客观的外部世界扩展。如今她的作品中,既有表现内在记忆和情感,能与观众产生共鸣的作品,也有她对于真实世界的洞察与理解,并逐渐出现包括女性主义,LGBT群体,对科技的关注等不同主题的作品。
