Artist's Statement

Fen Hsu’s artwork reflects on nature and connection with a nod to the color fields and gestural style of abstract expressionism. In portraits in pastel, landscapes and abstract paintings, these references coalesce in contemporary visual art with a sense of fantasy and philosophy.

Artist's Biography

The art of Fen Hsu is a story of romance and of making lemonade out of lemons.

Part of a first-generation Taiwanese family in San Francisco, Fen studied art at the De Young Museum and the University of California, Berkeley. When she moved to Seattle, her future husband encouraged her in art and even took up painting himself, which led to painting and billiards romantic road trips where they continually discover the hidden culinary gems, magnificent landscapes and small communities of their home in the Pacific Northwest.

Life being full of surprises, her art practice comes about in part from a recent disability. Making lemonade out of lemons, she counts clothes mending and painting among her hobbies. Optimism and resourcefulness are part of the distinct spirit and style of her work
