“Art at the Hive” with Suyao Tian
The Hive Salon, 1621 Hennepin Ave. E., will host “Art at the Hive” with local artist and curator Suyao Tian, through March 9.
As a child, she often caught all kinds of small bugs, put them in jars, spoke to them, and played with them. Now, Tian still forages outdoors for bugs and natural elements. She still talks to them. But instead of putting them in a jar, she puts them into her paintings.
She mainly uses watercolors, and includes different pen marks to define the details of each painting to give the paintings layers and depth. It creates a very interesting micro and macro world.
