Ling-Wen Tsai

Ling-Wen Tsai Quiet Voids opens Friday March 11 at SPEEDWELL projects

Join Professor of Sculpture, Foundation, and MFA Ling-Wen Tsai (蔡姈妏) for her solo exhibition Quiet Voids at SPEEDWELL projects, 630 Forest Avenue, Portland, ME. 

Interested in the nature of seeing, and how our visual experiences influence our reality, Tsai's work takes a subtle, abstract, and minimalistic approach. While remaining true to who she is as an individual, Tsai has developed an artistic approach that draws the viewers into her world while still leaving space for self-reflection.

Our surroundings, whether natural or built, have a tremendous influence on our state of mind and have the power to shape our lives. [...] During recent winters, I have had the opportunity to spend some time alone in a rustic cabin in the remote Eastern Mountains of Maine. The seemingly endless vistas of snow-covered landscapes astonished me. Quiet and untouched white terrain, devoid of auditory and visual clutter, provides a spacious dimension where I am invited to enter and to just be. 

Quiet Voids is on view at SPEEDWELL projects March 11 - May 7 on Thursdays through Saturdays (12-6pm).
