"My inspiration comes from the veins of the leaves and the texture of minerals. I use the interactive characteristics of oil paint, water and oil to invent a unique way to integrate human figures and text lines, painted on linen, to complete unique abstract expressionist works."
Taiwanese artist, Hsiung Yu integrates elements from Oriental fashion with an interpretation of the Western spirit of abstract expressionism to establish a unique and philosophical abstracted style. The artworks display intricate texture, a sensual aesthetic as well as notions of self-expression and exploration. At the core of her practice is an emotional relationship to the abstract. Exploring cultural differences, the artworks blend notions of her Taiwanese identity as she aims to create visual metaphors that are shaped by her background into complex expressive visual metaphors.
