The wood sculptures of Hsu Tung Han are dynamically fashioned pieces of fine art. The Taiwanese artist is a master of puzzling together pieces of wood into unbelievable figurative sculptures.
This contemporary sculptor thinks of his work as a puzzle, carefully laying out each piece in preparatory drawings and clay models.
The highlight of Han’s work are the “pixelations” that appear throughout each figure. Using positive and negative space to great effect, the wood blocks either push or pull.
This gives his figures a dynamism that seems to set them in motion.
