Born in 1992 in Changhua, Taiwan, Hsu, Tun-Chieh graduated from the Institute of Visual Arts of the National Chiayi University.
For Tun-Chieh, who grew up in the green farmland, nature is easy to obtain. When he first came into contact with ceramic art, the natural texture of clay and the variability of glaze allowed him to directly link the memory of life with the temperature of the earth. He felt that many animals are in danger and at risk of extinction; some are not naturally eliminated, but humans’ over hunting. Even the venomous serpents and wild beasts, humans will cast greedy eyes on their scales and furs due to the material desires. Therefore, the artist gives his voice through his vivid and powerful works, hoping that human beings can pay attention and give the animals more space to live, so that the natural ecology can be balanced and sustainable.
