Luna Sue Huang (b.1998) is a Chinese artist currently based in London. She graduated from the Hubei Institute of Fine Arts in Painting in 2019, and then completed the MA in Illustration and Visual Media at the University of the Arts London in 2021. She primarily works with the medium of painting, drawing and printmaking. Her work is heavily influenced by her interest in feminism and spiritually introspection. She uniquely blends these themes with a focus on the traditional colors of Chinese Dunhuang wall paintings, incorporating enigmatic symbols and a keen sense of composition and rhythm. She was inspired by Eastern philosophy, exploring the visual expression of  subtle emotions and refection of life in a poetic way.

ARTIST STATEMENT

My work is about subconsciousness, my experience with synesthesia and feminism.

 

My artwork captures the subtle moments of emotions in life and expresses them in a poetic way. My work often reflects a deep understanding of human emotions, relationships and feelings, as I attempt to explore the private emotions of others from different angles, I want to give an intimate feeling through my works. Through my artwork, viewers can experience the emotions and experiences that are universally present in the depths of the human heart, from the moments of life, that’s also the reason why my works are most figurative, even though sometimes there are no figure in the actual painting, it is still interacted and observed by human.

 

I also believe that my art is a form of feminist action, as I highlight women's emotions and experiences to explore issues of gender discrimination and oppression. My work often reflects the situation and experiences of women in society and culture from my home country. Through my artwork, I aim to explore issues such as women's identity, gender roles, and bodily autonomy, showing my greater love and understanding towards female, while also calling for more attention and concern for women's rights and interests.

 

My work often involves exploring self-identity and focusing on social issues. In my art, art is not just a means of expression and communication, but also a way of self-healing and healing others. I have been learning to converse with myself and then use my work to express my reflection, empathise, and connect with others.

 

Everything is fluid and transitory. Inspired by Eastern Philosophy, I visually expressed these emotions I have experienced or noticed as a way of validating feelings people are experiencing, affirming their efforts, and encouraging them not to give up.
