STATEMENT

 

By using the most basic materials – pencil on paper and wood – Hsin-Hsi Chen continues her commitment in ‘pencil drawing’ to present the illusionary and riddled paths in 3D structures. Chen’s recent work is an evolution to merge drawing, light, shadow and actual illumination. Surreal and illusionary light and shadow versus real light and shadow are constructed from 3D architectural paper, wood forms to large-scale installation. The untouchable and invisible time and space overlap the unpredictable challenges and growth in universe as the light illuminates those mysterious elements and source of life. The shadow within reflects its subject as the soul to the human being.
