Cynthia Sah's work shows a refined and elegant contour, fully and exquisitely conveying the artist's minimalistic aesthetics and the subtle, delicate variations in material texture. After the artist's long hours of hand-carving, the solid marble seems to manifest a captivating spirit. The Sah family has a pride history of over eight centuries, and the renowned 13th-century poet-painter Sah Du-La was one of Cynthia Sah's eminent ancestors, whose works are included in the collection of the Palace Museum. Other prominent figures in the family include Sah Chen-Ping, the famous admiral that fought in the First Sino-Japanese War; the well-known physicist, Sah Pen-Tung; the pioneer in the field of semi-conductor, Sah Chih-Tang; and the celebrated jurist and political science scholar, Sah Meng-Wu. Born in Hong Kong in 1952, Cynthia Sah grew up in Taiwan in the 60s, and after receiving her MA in Art and Art Education, she moved to and settled down in Seravezza near Mount Carrara in Italy, starting a life of travelling between Taiwan and Italy. Over her more than four decades of sculptor career, Sah has obtained various achievements. She is the recipient of the First Prize of Chinese Modern Sculpture Exhibition and was featured in OPEN 2000—International Exhibition of Sculpture in Venice.
