"Every crack in life is a story or imprint. It is a window to the new world." In her earlier works, she used the sacred tree in Alishan as the main subject. She gave spirituality and imagination to the nature due to her admiration and reverence to it. Every plant lived an elf, transmitting messages through roots, stems, leaves, living habits, and growth patterns, stretching a vast network of life in a magical space. In recent works, she tried to break the texture of the paper and reconstruct it, so that it can produce various wrinkles and seams, look like the mend, recover, and real existence of life; to use the indistinct traces left by the silk cloth and colored ink to represent the experiences, emotions and the hope.
"I believe that every tiny thing will become more profound after the delicate depiction. What the doctors have to do is to create the miracles, and what I want to do is to make these things romantic." HSU visualizes her skin disease and life perception through paintings. The pictures of the cells which are made up of dots and lines in the medical room, like the annual rings, like the mountains, like the future power, slowly spreading, struggling.
