"Deep Breath"
Kuo-yu HSU

Kuo-yu lives in a world in perfect symbiosis with nature; she does not judge it as beautiful or ugly, nor does she reduce it to a pretty picture or abstract it from life. Hers is a nature that carries mankind's presence deep within it: the human element impacts nature with its sufferings and dreams, and although seemingly absent due to its ephemeral passage, it is nevertheless a part of this nature. Man both exists and doesn't exist, but he has transformed the face of the earth by adding his dramatic imprint to the grand innocence existing before him. His dreams hover over the emerald green of the trees — the same trees that the old Chinese masters painted through the centuries, the same trees that inspired Leonardo when he painted them in the background of his portraits.

Kuo-yu's vision and technique progress hand-in-hand, true and faithful, pure and without pretention or superficial effects. It is a vision that conveys life's complexity by superposition of several of it's dimensions, through the eyes of a poet.

After obtaining her Diploma of Fine Arts at the University of Chinese Culture in Taipei in 1994, Kuo-yu obtained her Advanced National Diploma of Plastic Arts from the 'Beaux-Arts' School of Paris in 2000. She has participated in both France and Taiwan in collective exhibitions such as the 'Salon des Indépendants' in Paris, and the Hall of Social Education in Taipei. During the year 2001 Kuo-yu won first prize from the Salon d'Automne in Paris as well as the 'Julien Féron' prize. Selected for several exhibitions such as the 'Pavia Young European Art' in the Italian International contest, her work has been acquired for the Museum of Contemporary Art of Pavia, Italy.
