Originary from Taipei, Taiwan Hui-Chu Ying is currently an Associate Professor at the Myers School of Art, University of Akron, USA. She completed a Bachelor’s Degree in Arts from the San Jose State University, and received an M.F.A. from West Texas State University, 1987.
Ying uses I-Ching, the Chinese book of changes, as the basis for her creative process. In her prints, multiple woodblocks and silk screens are used to build up layers. Designs and motifs are generated from historical and contemporary art sources. The elements are chosen randomly and combined to make the image a whole. She uses a variety of media combining painting, drawing, etching, screen-printing, relief printing, and collages.
