Crystal Cave Sparkles with Miraculous Brightness

ASYMMETRIK Galley is pleased to present "Crystal Cave",
a solo exhibition of works by Tang-Wei Hsu.

After the Nature's Wonderland on display in 2013, Tang-Wei Hsu, a renowned international artist, continues breaking new ground on his endeavors in New York. His work has been featured in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Denmark, Australia, many cities in the USA, among others. Hsu's large-scale stainless steel sculptures and the plane drawings of creatures (organic patterns) composed in white and black lines and seen as his individual signature, have gradually brought him worldwide acclaim.

Crystal Cave is part of a residency program Tang-Wei Hsu participates in, presented by ASYMMETRIK Gallery. Through in-site creation, the artist intends to show us a crystal-like visual illusion drawn on his imaginative combinations of pressure, temperature and time emanating from the crystal cave. By so doing, interesting aura and visual power formed within and outside the works foster a rich sensorial interaction with the viewers.

For this exhibition, Hsu also produces a series of paintings entitled Invisible Mountain. The artist creates scenic settings resembling natural environments, and further draws a number of entomo-creatures with mechanical details shuttling in the scenes. His unique style and deliberate visual disposition make the Invisible Mountain look like some unknown kingdom in the real cosmos; moreover, the artist’s imagination apparently becomes truer because of compact spatial composition. “The artist let them steadily lie on a realistic ‘relay space’ which seems to neither come nor leave. They are just as unrestrained fantasies emerged out of imagination overstepping reality,“ describes Sheng-Hung Wang (art critic).

If plane works (either drawings or paintings) as a whole are a blueprint of Tang-Wei Hsu’s dream world, sculptures may no doubt be regarded as his practice of 3-dimensional shaping. Hsu makes a big effort to bring planets seemingly from the outer space or sculptures of outlandish flowers and plants into the public space of real life. In this exhibition, the Animal Scales is a series of sculptures, which can be seen as carefully hatched crystals; that is because it was hard to anticipate what the works would be like in time during the process of creation. Apart from organic black lines and candy-like colors, the artist specially retains the characteristic of mirror stainless steel on parts of the surface, so that the works can reflect the fluidity formed between the viewers themselves and the exhibit space. Providing that the small model of Pocono Bud on display is outlandish flowers with Hsu’s attentive care, the small Flowers floating in the space are as adorable as accidentally falling wildflowers and sprawling weeds with exuberant vitality.

By the concept of dynamics, Tang-Wei Hsu will proceed to work in site for a series of long black-and-white paintings: Invisible Mountain. In addition, there are five drawings of late, apart from several multi-component sculptures installed in the gallery. Ultimately, we want to present the joy and relevance related to the mutual transformation between Hsu’s plane works and 3-dimentional sculptures.

When you see it, it gets you to the core. Ocean wave by Ran Ortner.

New York artist Ran Ortner paints a particular kind of sea.

Not a boat, not a rock, not a headland, a lighthouse or a human being to be seen.

His ocean is a turbulent place, its surface dented and buckled into complex troughs and peaks, the surface smeared with foam. Ortner’s images convey weight and movement, the physics of water’s behaviour under massive forces. Sometimes, it’s as though a giant wave has passed through, moments before Ortner’s moment, leaving the surface of the sea exhausted.

Such is the visceral realism of Ortner’s work that the paintings arrayed round the walls of his studio look like windows onto a livid sea outside the room.

This is a unique and unforgettable feature. For the full spread of Ran Ortner’s amazing works, and Mick Sowry’s accompanying words, be sure to find yourself a copy of Great Ocean Quarterly Volume 1:4, on sale everywhere 30 October. Photograph David Oglesby
