Fusing ancient Chinese traditions and Western techniques, Wu’s sculptures combine the rigid properties of bronze with the delicate beauty of human nature.
Inspired by her upbringing in Eastern Taiwan, her art reflects a wish to love her ancestors and all living things. With influences ranging from flower-arranging to calligraphy, her move to the United States pushed her to create a new kind of Chinese beauty.
By sensitively abstracting figurative sculpture from its traditional form, Wu explores the differences between Eastern and Western aesthetics. Her studio is now in the mountains near where she grew up, which she says gives her the chance to reflect and connect with her inner self.
Wu says: “I use the simplest lines in my sculptures, allowing them to manifest. Be it a mirror image or a shadow, there are channels that give us an opportunity to self-reflect, explore and converse with ourselves. We think, whisper and listen to our deepest emotions.”
