Digital and analog realms collide in the dynamic sculptures of Taiwanese artist Han Hsu-Tung (previously). Using soft western redcedar or Laotian fir, Han carves wooden animals and figures that are whisked into pixels, which appear to dissolve and float away from the central form. One of his most recent works, the stately warrior-like “Shaolin,” also features a kinetic component that shifts the blocks in jarring, horizontal movements. Taking approximately three to four months to complete, each work blends a computerized vision with the traditional medium as it draws attention to the scattered nature of the virtual world and how individual elements are essential to the whole.

New Figurative Wooden Sculptures by Han Hsu-Tung Dissolve Into Pixelated Cubes

October 24, 2018

Kate Sierzputowski

Taiwanese artist Han Hsu-Tung (previously) skillfully carves figures from blocks of wood, adding and eliminating cubed segments that make each bird, hand, and human look as if they are morphing into a monochromatic array of pixels. The works hint at our relationship with the screen, presenting the increasingly distracted way in which we view the world. You can see more of Han’s carved walnut, teak, and African wax woodwork on Flickr.
