ABOUT THE ARTIST

By sourcing from magazines and assembling new images from their detritus, Jeannie Hua reverses the magazines' images designed to appeal to mass consumerism back to expressions of thoughts of the individual.

 

Her handmade collages address surface versus the internal, the effect of environment upon the individual, and the tension between passivity versus human empowerment.

Hua was born in Taiwan and moved to Cincinnati, Ohio at the age of 8. Growing up, she experienced racial prejudice. It wasn't unusual for her to be told by venders to go wait in the back of the line while caucasians were served first. That was the beginning of her foray into societal isolation.

 

She went to collage at University of Chicago and law school at Lewis and Clark College. Hua practiced indigent criminal defense for twenty plus years. She then closed her practice, became an artist and never looked back.
