Yeachin Tsai’s art swings between the seen world of rhythmic colors and forms, and the unseen world of momentum and energies.

Rather than building up a painting surface, she creates a surface that soaks in paint – canvases prepared with grounds that behave like traditional rice paper, pulling the paint in.
She says: “I’ve always been intrigued by form, pattern and colors from nature. My interest may have started when I was four years old. I remember seeing the floating, shining dust particles reflecting the sunlight in the stale attic air of my family’s old house. The magic quality of nowness left an unspeakable feeling in my mind… I want to create artwork that is primordial and timeless, ancient yet modern. I wish to catch the symbolism and momentum of the flow. The materials are used to reflect the feelings and perceptions I have experienced in life – the ever changing, transient, fleeting moments of this dynamic, chaotic yet harmonious worl
