Press Release for PLATES

PLATES “Origin of Flesh” is Karen Hsiao’s newest body of work. These PLATES are morphological studies of the architecture in organisms and the human body. Her subjects undergo the influence of physical and moral modifications both in respect of its euphoric and aesthetic qualities. The subject conforms and shapes their body to a secondary layer of skin, infusing living tissue into inanimate intercellular substances adapting themselves into rare and valuable specimens.

Plate IVa

First of many finished pieces for my two person show with Louis Fleischauer in Japan this coming July 8-16 2010. It's crazy how in Japan most galleries only show their artist for two weeks on their off seasons (winter and fall), but in the summer, they only show them for one week. I have a good amount done for the show, but I'm working on doing more.

"Plate IVa" mix medium, mostly wax and oil paint on photographic image.
