Shirley Tse

Shoshana Wayne Gallery

Shirley Tse is one my favorite artists working in Los Angeles today and her fifth exhibition at Shoshana Wayne is once again astonishingly inventive, moving and full of wonder. Reminiscent of Louise Bourgeois’ strangely magnificent totems of the 1950s, Tse’s sculptures also reference the body, specifically the physical act of “seeing” and all its itinerant meanings from reaching to telescoping (and perhaps even teleporting!) as a means of better understanding our human relationship to the world around us, steeped as it is in so much sadness and hopelessness.
