Ju Ting Biography

Beijing-based artist Ju Ting's practice examines the qualities of texture, surface, painting, and printing in artworks in which layers of thickly applied paint are interrupted and exposed by fissures and gaps. Through such exploration, the artist opens up the possibilities of the folded, draped, sliced, or coated painting plane.

Graduating with a BA in Printmaking from the Central Academy of Fine Arts, Beijing, in 2007, followed by an MFA in Printmaking in 2013, Ju brings printmaking techniques to the painted canvas; her works begin with the application of monochromatic layers of acrylics in a fashion similar to printing. Her practice from the beginning has revolved around carving and engraving these layers. In her series, 'Untitled' (2015—ongoing), she layered contrasting coats of dense acrylic paint, and incorporated surface damage, rips, and cuts. In some works, more recently in the series, she peeled back layers like a curtain and fixed them to the edges. For the '+-' (2016—2018) and 'Pearl' (2016—ongoing) series of works the thick surface is slashed with sharp tools to create fields of long vertical slits articulated through chromatic, tonal, and textural contrasts. In '+-', challenging notions of painting and texture, the strips carved out from half the surface are re-applied to the uncut surface at the top of the painting.

Ju is one of several key women on the international art scene representing the most recent generation of Chinese contemporary art. She has exhibited in China and Europe, her work featuring in prominent Chinese public collections. She has exhibited at Art Basel numerous times, and featured in ART021 Shanghai Contemporary Art Fair in 2018.
