Hua Jin is a visual artist born in China, living and working in Montreal, Canada. Jin received her MFA at Concordia University in Montreal, and her BFA at Emily Carr University of Art + Design in Vancouver. Jin’s mediums are photography, installation, and video. She has exhibited extensively in solo and group shows throughout Canada, China, and the United States, as well as in Mexico and Holland. Jin has benefitted from several residencies, and has received over 30 prestigious awards and grants, the latest being the first Cultural Diversity in Visual Arts Award given by the Conseil des arts de Montréal in 2018. Jin’s works are featured in private and public collections, including the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, Montreal Art Council, the City of Montreal, and Canada Global Affairs, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Shanghai. Her several projects are supported by the Canada Council for the Arts and Conseil des arts et des Lettres du Québec (CALQ).
As a Chinese-Canadian artist, Jin’s way of thinking is inherently rooted in Eastern culture and philosophy. Jin’s works contemplate the idea of permanence and change, of the passing of time and of the evanescent quality of existence. She is particularly interested in the subject of nature and landscape. Her recent artistic practices focus on the spiritual, memorial and meditative side of nature as well as its related history and human stories.
