City Carrier 22, Ink on watercolor paper, 2013

Tang-Wei creates complex drawings as well as mixed media installations composed of his drawings, paintings, and architectural features. He often alludes to nature in his work and interprets physical features of our universe like the stars and astronomy, either at close range or at a distance. By combining his fanciful worlds with practical architectural features he asks us to suspend our disbelief and to embrace his fantasy terrains and enjoy them as part of our everyday surroundings.

Those works hope to produce the relationship between the miniature and enormous scale in his paintings. Different layers from the painting produce many relationships, in order to make this imaginary space or scene are fantastic as outer space, every statuses of every distance are compressed into the flat paintings. Also extends the new imagine and fantasy from this space, by creating some clustered symbols in an artificial way, to make it feels like some unknown biology, biological unit, and various imagination of scenes. Hsu’s paintings begin from an imagined fantasy space extending into installation, sculpture and public art.
