Cindy Hsu is an artist based in Los Angeles, CA. Her approach to art stems from a love of nature and movement as well as a deep curiosity about form, texture, and finish. Her work is process and material-driven, with individual pieces serving as studies on gesture, curves, depth, and weight.
Hsu's latest series of reliefs explore the technique of wood carving as excavation. Biomorphic forms are revealed in a subtractive process, unearthing seemingly ordinary observations and feelings carved out of solid blocks of wood. Each piece memorializes something in particular: an everyday object, a small gesture, a fleeting moment, a shared memory, or a specific time and place.
