The work of Hsu Meng-Han revolves around the artist’s visions of life, passion, and mortality, both her public and private artistic vocabularies on display. Developing a solid foundation in art from an early age, Hsu has cultivated a practice focused on the visual tension created through metaphor — a sense evident in her acrylic painting series Essence of Pain. In recent years, as Hsu’s practice has expanded to oil painting with the Manuscript Series, as well as photography, installation, and work in other media, she has carved out an individual visual language with an emotive energy that resonates deep within.
Hsu Meng-Han’s language is distinct from traditional dictions seen in photography and new media art. In her series of photography Flesh and the Everydayness, certain aspects are blurred so sharply that they appear as paintings. In her Lilliputians series, Hsu captures scenes that drip with strangeness — the plastic plants and statues found in forests at certain Taiwanese amusement parks. In Hsu’s installation work, the juxtaposition of photos and objects create a space that reflects both the artist’s personal memories and her wider culture.
Hsu Meng-Han approaches her work via her own experience of life, interweaving her personal world through the broader social fabric and giving texture to this unique landscape, which not only speaks to timeless beauty but opens a door for viewers to peer inside the everyday lives of others.

藝術家徐夢涵的作品涵蓋繪畫、攝影、裝置等多樣媒材,其創作內容展現私密與開放的藝術語彙,並圍繞著生死、情慾與生活的軌跡。她從小接受紮實的學院訓練,多年來擅長在作品中,以隱喻呈現視覺張力,尤其以壓克力作品《疼痛》系列最為代表。近年並延伸至攝影、裝置及《手記》系列的油畫;強烈的個人風格與豐沛能量,往往激起觀者情緒的共鳴。
有別於傳統攝影或新媒體藝術,徐夢涵創造屬於她的影像語言,包括主題或局部清晰至模糊,帶有某種繪畫性的《日常與肉身》;以台灣特定遊樂區的塑料植物、林間雕像,融合成怪奇氛圍的《小花園》;以及藉由物件和照片,反映個人記憶與文化的裝置作品。
徐夢涵從生命經歷出發,透過創作將她的私密世界與外在社會,交織成獨特的風景,書寫雋永之美,引領觀者走進彼此的日常。
