Artist Biography

Shi-Ting (‘Tex’) Han is a native of Shandong, China with a lifelong dream of becoming a professional artist. He earned a master’s degree in art from Shantou University, and has worked as a college art professor.  Since he came to the United States in 2013, he has continued to pursue his artistic career. In his paintings, Tex combines impressionism and expressionism to form his own style. His work also contains elements and influences of Chinese. Tex believes that through painting, an artist can do the things that a camera cannot. He loves the beauty of nature and he believes that God is the greatest artist, so the landscape became his primary subject. Tex is influenced by such Masters as Monet, Corot, and Van Gogh, and their influence can be seen in his works.

Artist Statement

I have always been interested in Art. As a child, I would draw everything I saw. While attending university I studied Comprehensive Material Painting. I then pursued a Master’s Degree, which I received in 2008. During this period, my interest was Art Creative Direction. I studied how different artists built up their own styles. For the next 7 years, during a postgraduate study period, I determined that, with the rise of photography, Fine Art was going away from realism. However, my love of painting has kept me committed to my craft. I firmly believe there is something that a camera cannot catch, for example, our feeling, emotion, or understanding towards a particular subject. Therefore, in the future, I plan continue pursuing painting and also plan to focus on creating nonobjective art, where There there are no barriers of materials/time/space etc.

Artist Biography:

is an American abstract/expressionist living on the east coast. After working many years in graphic design, she left work to raise her two sons. 2013 marked a return to her roots as a fine artist. Her most recent series of paintings attempt to bridge the gap between the dream world and reality.

She received her BFA from Indiana University of Pennsylvania and studied graphic design for an additional year at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh.

Michele’s paintings attempt to bridge the gap between her personal dream world and reality. Pulling from this otherworldly place and using multiple layers of paint and glaze, she hopes to bring forth a personal story—a visual stream of (sub) consciousness.

Most often her paintings begin with only a color scheme in mind. At the start of her work she will spread paint in an exhilarating period of complete freedom, energy and expression.

Moving paint around the canvas, Michele states, “That I’m guided only by my instincts – one color influences another, one shape dictates the next. After this initial development the real work begins—the work of tearing down and rebuilding. There is always struggle before the resolution but it is in the act of painting that a narrative emerges and perhaps even some meaning from this mysterious place.”

Her work has been exhibited in many galleries, publications and acquired in private collections throughout the United States and internationally.
