Angela Su’s art always possessed this raw, dark power, an intense visceral energy that was transcending and compelling. Her images were raw and as emotionally charged as Bacon’s while embodying the subversive nature of Hirst’s. Their masochistic beauty forced us to rethink our own definition of aesthetic. While some might consider these images social taboos, they could not avoid the temptation to peep or scrutinize. Pleasure in pain alongside the beauty in gore or exhilaration in the haunted: that was what was inspiring to me, alongside the sheer bravery of confronting the dark side and the full force of the human psyche.
