Ling-Wen Tsai

Artist Statement

"This new body of work is a playful study on squares. It began with my interest in working with limitations and discovering the possibilities that lie within. Through changes in scale, proportion, composition, and color, the work explores complexity within simplicity. The organic quality of the mark marking allows each square to be unique in its own right. Through this repetitive and yet variable process, I want to create a sense of order, chaos, depth, flatness, contraction, expansion, stability and movement."

Ling-Wen Tsai performs, collaborates, photographs, teaches, and paints. She is an Associate Professor of Sculpture and New Media at Maine College of Art and has exhibited, performed or been screened at nationally and internationally venues including Bowdoin College, Space Gallery, Tampopo Art Space in Taiwan, Qasim Sabti Gallery in Baghdad, the Goethe Institute in Boston, and Cit-Internationale des Arts in Paris, France.
