Mia Wen-Hsuan Liu (b. 1980) was born in Taipei, Taiwan, Liu was educated in the United States, firstly at the San Francisco Art Institute, graduating in 2007, then undertaking graduate study in painting at CUNY Hunter College in New York in 2008. While studying in San Francisco, Liu defied expectations by switching from ‘new genres’, a major that focused on conceptual art, installation, performance and new media, to return to painting and drawing. She found herself drawn back to paper, and to more ephemeral contemporary practices. Later, she returned to drawing and began to consider how the traditions and conventions of mark-making on paper could be reinvented. She is interested in the fact that drawing today is no longer bound by historical convention; it can be sculptural, kinetic – even performative. She calls her own practice ‘installation drawing’, a lengthy process that involves the physical act of drawing on paper as a starting point, before the drawings are translated into digital forms, cut, stacked, arranged in space and finally documented photographically.
