Su-Mei Tse is a visual artist whose multidisciplinary work contemplates existence, notions of time, and rhythm. She expresses life questions by capturing fleeting moments of memories and feelings through various media including photography, sculpture, film, and installation. Impressions in everyday existence whether they be a passing thought, transitory state, or a visual or auditory experience are lyrically translated in her work. Tse was initially trained as a classical cellist before completing visual arts studies. This leads her to reflect on the nature of music and self, while the perception of visual and auditory elements remain central to her work. The artist’s practice is not solely seen and heard, but it is felt. Similarly responding to her background of Chinese and British descent, Tse offers contemplations of cultural variance stemming from her own relationship between East and West.
