“Hand spun and dyed with 36,000 ft of thread, Perpencircular 002 is a study on scale, weight, and texture.” — Cindy Hsu Zell

About the Artist

171fde5f 71bf 4b53 ba5d bb84bf40b683

Cindy Hsu Zell (b. 1989) is a Los Angeles-based, multidisciplinary artist who creates fiber-based sculptures out of handmade rope. She studied art and animation at USC and went on to work in retail display, gaining extensive experience designing and executing large-scale multi-media installations. She constructs every detail by hand, resulting in works that are labor-intensive in process yet minimal in aesthetic. Her work explores gravity’s influence on material and the process behind it. Individual pieces serve as studies on curves, drape, weight, and movement, combining to create new forms that reinterpret traditional techniques in rope-making, metal-smithing, and woodworking.
