Kiana Mui
Compliant Vulnerability- Textured Figurative Acrylic & Clay Painting on Canvas

$3,666

About

Kiana Mui is an artist who cannot be boxed into any one category. She describes herself as a “versatile freelance artist dipping her foot in almost anything that can become an expressive medium for my thoughts, emotions and ideas.” That translates into artwork on items such as Converse shoes, jean jackets or rocking chairs, as well as video installation, animation, and virtual reality. Mui is also a sought-after painter, muralist and graphic designer. She follows her passion and embraces any project that requires creative thought. In her work Compliant Vulnerability, Kiana explores her personal journey and relationship with religion, yielding a grasping piece that provokes intrinsic thought and reflection. In her own words, "This piece resembles how vulnerable I get when I am lacking self love and find myself relying on the religion I was brought into (Catholicism > Christianity). To have my mask taken off and showing true vulnerability to this deity (mask on= confident/determined)... Whenever I doubt myself and feel this compliant vulnerability, I feel as if I am no longer in control." The seemingly dark context of this work is quite inspiring, and even more so when you understand the experience and emotion from the artist. With texture reflecting the adversity we face when approaching the topic of religion and spirit, Kiana's use of black and white remind us of the stark dichotomy we've been fed to believe about opposing forces: good and evil.
