Hsu articulates every personality of life and nature with recurring lines, patterns, shapes and bright colours, adding an obvious sensation full of vitality and joy to all of her works. Similar to building forces that both wrestle with and work together to take part in nature, the artist’s enormously detailed print-like acrylic pieces immediately engage the audience to investigate closer; yet the combination of straightforward lines, curves and dots, and the almost odd but blending choice of hue composition render any further explanation effortless.
The artist’s personal interpretation of connecting life and nature, of presenting their intertwined and varied intricacies through simultaneously creating harmony and tension in the spaces on her canvases all reflect her own multi-cultural background and experiences.
Competition, struggles, sustainability, reproduction, co-existence, etc. I paint every day human life, my own experiences, feelings, and encounters using the nature’s elements. I feel that they express it better and also teaches valuable lessons. Although nature has its own struggles, ups and downs, they do it more gracefully and visually more pleasingly. They are fragile yet strong.
