Yenti Hsu is a spatial practitioner whose work has been described as an attempt at "drawing in space". Whilst her practice is informed by a high level of technical training and research spanning Constructivism, Minimalism, and other fields of aesthetic theory, it is also shaped by her own deeply personal sensibility and experience; imbuing her work with feeling that manifests for the viewer through its materiality, texture, use of form and shape. Rather than responding to a site, Yenti's practice seeks to create a new space within the given space, and to invite the viewer in. Imperfections and variations in the surface texture find their place. Light and shade, the two-dimensional and the three-dimensional, find a kind of home in the work.
