Hello, My name is Suyao Tian. I’m an artist, designer and independent curator residing in the twin cities.
Painting is my own language to connect to the world. I was born during the one-child-only generation of China in the 80s. Growing up, I hadn’t any siblings, I couldn’t have pets, and making friends was limited by rules, inhibited communication and confidence. As a child, I often caught all kinds of small bugs, put them in jars. I spoke to them, played with them, and they were the only listeners in my childhood. Now They become a symbol and language of my own. I mainly use watercolor medium, but I also use different pen marks to define the details of each painting to give the audience layers and depth of the painting. My creative process is to extract the fragments of memory and separate, reorganize and integrate them. These peculiar images often appear in my memory, dreams and subconscious imaginations, so I use abstraction to catch a moment, feeling, and unclear form when they appear in my mind.
