Shes a rainbow

She's a Rainbow

Piece description from the artist

"She's like a rainbow, throwing colors everywhere…"

- She's a Rainbow', The Rolling Stones

Hana explores painting material, women's biographies, and art history. She recycles other artists' work and her own. These combinations result in something new. She builds heavy surfaces on the canvas by mixing her paint with sawdust and sand. Contemporary culture and history co-exist in her compelling mixture of form, color, and texture.

About Hana Shoup

Denver, CO

I was born in the small town of Brenham, Texas. I drew constantly all through childhood. Animals were my first models, both real (my menagerie of pets) and fantastic (dragons and such). Despite this obsession with drawing, I did not pursue art as a career until college. During my undergraduate education, I studied drawing, painting, printmaking, and art history. I absorbed these subjects like a sponge, culminating in a Bachelor of Fine Arts with a painting concentration from Baylor University. I traveled abroad, and lived for five months in Florence, Italy. There I took classes in cooking, Italian, and Renaissance art. Upon my return the States, I dove into art again. I attended an intensive drawing “marathon” at the New York Studio School. I then moved to Baltimore. I was a Texas girl eager to see the East Coast and to attend MICA as a Post-Baccalaureate student. After that, I moved to Houston, TX, to earn my Master of Fine Arts from the University of Houston. I currently live in Denver.
