Hsin-Yi Huang & Sally Squire

Hsin-Yi Huang & Sally Squire Showing in the Main Gallery September 25-October 28

Hsin-Yi Huang

Hsin-Yi Huang is a ceramic artist of delicate, intricate work. She primarily uses porcelain for this series. To quote Hsin-Yi “I like the smoothness and how glazes respond to the clay body. I find it particularly suitable for flower forms. I love flowers and the feeling they evoke in me. Their beauty makes me pause and look, like eyes being being drawn to light in the darkness. And however short of time, all chatter in my head stops, and I am present at that moment. Hisn-Yi technique is a combination of wheel throwing and hand building.”

 

Sally Squire

 

 

 

 

Sally Squire creates amazing art using the most unexpected common everyday materials. This show features pieces created with strapping tape, price tags, plastic fasteners, otoscope nozzles, heavy texture thread, and zip ties. To highlight some of the pieces, she has introduced some L.E.D. s. She explains, “One of the ways I try to reduce the complexity of the world is searching for it s patterns.” By zooming in on a scene to an almost atomic level, she creates an intriguing overall effect. The composition of multiples of individual pieces, when connected form a beautiful composition that is original in it s own right.
