Ruo-Hsin Wu is a Taiwanese visual artist who focuses on painting, drawing, and handmade animation. She holds a BA in Animation from Taipei National University of the Arts and a MA in Visual Communication from Royal College of Art. Her works are dreamy yet bittersweet, fluctuating between innocence and grotesque. Her practice is usually driven by her personal experience, dealing with time, space, and memory, especially her childhood. Each piece of her work is a non-linear story made of fragments from the world around her. To create empathetic communication, she has developed an ambiguous narrative form, dealing with the junction between individual and collective memory. She is fascinated with how the meaning of a work can develop within the viewer in a state of perpetual growth and extension.
