Where I Work: Richard Tsao


Tsao’s methods—spontaneous action, momentary deliberation and prolonged incubation—mean that any given work gestates for up to three years before the artist deems it complete… Having finally achieved a certain compositional “tension”—the planes of pink, blue, white, green or orange conversing with each other in transparent layers—Tsao might finally chip off dense portions of calcified pigment with a small hammer. It seems that such works have been ultimately pried clean of some sublime tropical, or lunar, geography.
