Signs of Life compiles twenty-five years of Brook Hsu’s sketchbooks and journals, from Kindergarten to the present. Subjects vary from dogs to devils, rats, boots, babies and holes, but share a tendency to puncture human dignity. People are reduced to masses of perverted voids and points. Dogs become wicked subhuman proxies. Written words are scrambled into insignificance. At their lightest, Hsu’s drawings are a subtle mockery of civilization’s self-importance; at their darkest they tear at our moral fiber. Hsu has an uncanny ability to endow even the most prosaic things with a deathly halo, blending everything from daffy cartoons to chiaroscuro vignettes into a mélange of bathos and malice.
