1956 Born in Easton, Pennsylvania (US)

Gilbert Hsiao grew up in the midwestern state of Indiana and came to study art history in New York City at Columbia University. He is a self-taught practitioner of hard edged, abstract painting who names music and the psychology of perception as chief influences in the development of his work.

For nearly thirty years, Hsiao has explored the mechanics of visual perception. His paintings of the past decade are characterized by their use of intricately overlaid, exacting stripes of color. Recently, he has been experimenting with shaped panels which create an active, continuously shifting surface, with no traditional sense of top or bottom, left or right. Hsiao new paintings seem to simultaneously defy both the eye and one's sense of gravity.

Unlike much reductive, pattern-based painting, however, Hsiao approaches his practice spontaneously and makes each painting intuitively. In other words, Hsiao's paintings are not executed according to a predetermined plan, but rather are the sum of a series of improvised decisions. Similarly, the hanging of much of this work is similarly spontaneous; works are oriented according to the spaces in which they are to be displayed. Thus the same painting can be hung differently in different environments.

After 30 years in Brooklyn, NY, USA, Gilbert Hsiao (b. 1956, USA) now lives and works in Berlin, Germany. His work has been exhibited internationally, including the United States, Australia, New Zealand, The Netherlands, and Germany. He recently mounted solo exhibitions at Gallery Sonja Roesch (Houston), dr julius | ap (Berlin) and MINUS SPACE (Brooklyn). Recent group exhibitions include P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center / MoMA (New York), McKenzie Fine Art (New York), IS Projects (Leiden, The Netherlands), Sydney Non Objective (Australia), and Gesellschaft für Kunst und Gestaltung (Bonn). Hsiao was awarded a Fellowship in Painting from the New York Foundation for the Arts in 2008. His work is included in a number of public, corporate, and private collections worldwide.

Lives and works in Berlin (DE) and New York (US).
