About Kindreds – Panda and Bamboo by Martin Hsu:
“Participating artist Martin Hsu’s adorable piece for this show Kindreds – Panda and Bamboo, features two handmade resin figures that bring his stylized paintings to life. An elegant protective figure stands strongly against wind and snow to provide shelter for a much more vulnerable little panda. Despite what might seem like harsh conditions, the little panda bear looks on with confidence and bravery in the company of its noble guide. Martin’s philosophy for creating art is as beautiful as his work. ‘I sincerely hope my work brings you joy and some peace of mind.’ This intent is definitely felt in this charming piece as it elicits feelings of comfort and contentment.” – Written by Emiko Woods for Press Release of Being a Panda
