Ying Hung Biography

Ying Hung graduated from the Department of Fine Arts at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, and later received a Master's degree in Fine Arts from Pratt Institute in New York, where she has remained ever since. The city of New York and its art scene have inspired and nurtured her as an artist, further developing her understanding of art and contributing to her interest in humanistic issues. Fully devoted to her pursuit of art, her mysterious and thought-provoking multi-media installations are constructed with refreshing wit and political overtones.

Ying's unique perspective of observation reflects the foundation of Eastern and Western cultures, as well as one's position in relation to social structure. Her work features repetitive patterns of unusual imagery that mildly represent figures of acrobats, acupuncture, "low-life animals," vegetation, Buddhism, and feminist motifs.Based on her own cross-cultural experiences, her work is a response to varying phenomena and cultural identities of East and West. While her earlier work illustrated a textural quality, her newer works appear more flat through her application of gesso and modeling plastic onto canvas. In concurrence with her solo exhibition The Second Wife's Daughter in New York in 1993 the artist stated, "In my paintings I like to present images and let people form their own narrative - but here I wanted to express feelings about the history of my family - and of modern women in times of violent change." This exhibition explored the complex relationship between Mainland China and Hong Kong, as well as the colonial position of Hong Kong prior to 1997 and the attempted survival of her local masses. Her work not only manifests the context of a female artist's introspection, but also her own personal desire for new freedom while still remaining connected to her past.

Ying was awarded the Award in Painting at the Three Rivers Art Festival in 1986 and the Joan Mitchell Foundation Grant Award in 1995. In 1997, she was invited to the Hsin Chu Teachers College in Taipei as an artist in residence. Her work has been included in various group and solo exhibitions, such as the Hong Kong Art Biennial Exhibition, Hong Kong Museum of Art, Hong Kong (1983); the International Memorial Art Festival hosted by PS1 Contemporary Art Center, New York (1990), The Second Wife's Daughter, a solo exhibition at the Chinese American Art Council, New York (1993); Good Business is the Best Art Flat Files at the Bronx Museum of the Arts, New York (2000); The Players at the Asian American Arts Center, New York (2002); and Eight Thirty at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong (2011).
