New Artist Watch Feature at Escape Into Life

Hua Nian, Piano Lesson, Paper-Tearing, 12" x 12"

I have chosen for my last Artist Watch column of 2017 the highly expressive paper-tearing art of Hua Nian of Illinois.

Hua, a member of the International Society of Acrylic Painters and the National Oil and Acrylic Painters Society, has lived in the United States since 1992. Her award-winning paintings are exhibited widely and found in numerous collections around the country. Her colorful paper-tearings, which always feature children, are colorful and full of feeling and are especially appropriate to feature at this time of year.

You will find in today's Artist Watch images of seven of Hua's paper-tearings (they are of various sizes), her Artist Statement, and her biography.
