Huang Hai-Hsin

Placeholder
Huang Hai-Hsin

Born: 1984

Hometown: Taipei

Lives and Works: New York

 

Hai-Hsin Huang's work is both an observation and depiction of contemporary life, with a specific focus on the seemingly banal aspects of life. She draws and paints familiar scenes taken from, for instance, family photos, tourists in tourists attractions, and institutions such as museums, banks and barber shops, in an effort to reveal what lies beneath the surface of life's banalities. To her, most aspects of life have the potential to be ridiculous, absurd, awkward, funny, tragic, frail, and meaningless all at once.

Huang's intent is heavily influenced by the Post 80's generation into which she was born, more so from the perspective of the characteristics she describes as "[M]arked by hedonism, people seem to know more but feel less. [Where] catastrophes become assumptions; people practice suffering and crisis with laughter."
Ultimately, Huang's voice is one of social commentary, highlighting cross-cultural, generational and socio-political themes that are evident, if we pay attention, in ordinary interactions between people, with our environment and with institutions of sorts.

Hai-Hsin Huang was born in Taipei, Taiwan 1984 and received her BA degree from National Taipei University of Education in 2007. In 2009 she received a MFA from The School of Visual Arts in New York. She currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. Huang has held solo shows at the ISE Cultural Foundation, New York, USA, Project Fulfill, Taipei, Taiwan, Gallery 456, New York, USA, and group shows at the Herzliya Museum of Contemporary Art, Herzliya, Israel, the Kyoto Cultural Center, Kyoto, Japan, the Kuandu Museum of Fine Arts, Taipei, Taiwan, and Capsule Gallery, Shanghai, China. Huang’s work has been collected by multiple private and public collections, including the White Rabbit Collection, Sydney, Australia, the Taipei Fine Arts Museum, Taipei, Taiwan and the National Taiwan Museum, Taichung, Taiwan.
