Art AsiaPacific Review - Richard Tsao


Each canvas presents a surface of densely encrusted color, comprised of dozens of layers of paint that evoke tectonic plates taking shape as they drift across a planet’s surface. Flecks of pigment emerge like faint starts that at first glance register on one’s retina searching the night sky. Broader fields of color slowly resolve into an even wider and shifting range across ridges, valleys and seas of texture. Never quite organic, the interstitial hues seem metallurgical, geological.
