Shu-mei Su | ceramics artist

With considerable skill, ceramics artist Shu-Mei Shu creates sculptures that make you take a second look. She took part in the group exhibition “Book of Lies” (2006) at 18th Street, contributing such whimsies as a “sardine can” with a web address printed on it. Other works incorporate the use of ceramic strands: in one piece, she has gathered vertical strands to resemble angel’s wings; in another, she has twisted them into clumps along the wall, arranged to look like flowers blooming in rows. Two works that stand out are the furniture ensemble of bed and chair made from electrical cord, and blown-up surgical “gloves” wave in greeting or farewell in the piece “Hello & Bye Bye.”
