Hui-Chu Ying

American, born Taiwan
(Taipei, Taiwan, 1956 - )
Lives Akron, Ohio
Hui-Chu Ying attended Shih Chien College in Taipei, Taiwan. She continued her education in the United States, earning a BA from San Jose State University in 1984, and an MFA in Intermedia and Printmaking from West Texas A & M State University in Canyon, TX in 1987. Ying has taught printmaking at the University of Akron’s Myers School of Art since 1989.

Ying conceives of her printmaking practice as a form of meditation and healing, a response to the world’s many tragedies, daily suffering and natural disasters. Among the motifs Ying often features in her work are text from the Koran, Torah, Buddhist sutras, and the Bible and hands, which are seen in various Buddhist mudra. Another important influence for Ying is the I-Ching (Book of Changes), a Chinese book of prophecy and wisdom. In discussing her art, Ying paraphrases Lao Tzu, a 6th century B.C. Chinese philosopher: “Positive always comes with negative. Take them as a whole and they will turn around.”

Hui-Chu Ying’s work has been exhibited internationally, including projects at Frans Masereel Centrum in Kasterlee, Belgium; Nelimarkka Museum in Alajärvi, Finland; Foundation Pilar I Joan Miro in Palma, Spain; and Shoalhaven City Arts Centre in Norwa, Australia.
