Hsun-yuan Hsu is a California artist originally from Taiwan. She is fascinated by how sculpture, typically stiff and immovable, can be transformed by modeling and design into something moving, alive and growing. Her sculptural works draw from nature, most often plants, to create living sculptures that show movement and growth. She also incorporates fractal and geometric patterns like spirals, to contrast and draw attention to the organic forms throughout her work.
Hsu has taken inspiration from fruits and vegetables spotted daily in markets in America and Asia. Her work imagines new life sprouting out of these familiar plants, adding tail-like forms and spirals. By combining these elements, she aims to recreate the warmth and the dynamic nature of life.
