[Workshop] Ink Painting Workshop

Ink Painting Workshop

The one-stroke paintings created by Ting Yin Yung in his later years are noteworthy for their graceful lines and straightforward compositions, which are also key features of his running and cursive scripts. In connection with the exhibition Enduring Strength and Passion: The Chinese and Western Art of Ting Yin Yung, this workshop will introduce Ting’s artistic concepts and methods for using brush and ink on xuan paper. Participants will practice the single-stroke technique to create their own simple-looking, yet sophisticated artwork by combining observation skills with brushwork.

Instructor: JOR Yin Fun

Ms Jor Yin Fun is currently Director of The White Box Studio and Secretary of White Box Friends. After graduating from the Department of Fine Arts, New Asia College of The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) in 1975, she worked on literary and art magazines alongside Mr Van Lau, Mr Wong Kai-chee and Mr Gu Cangwu. In 1981, she was awarded a scholarship by the Japanese Ministry of Education to study in Japan. During her studies, she conducted research on art education in the Taisho era. In 1985, she studied mosaic murals at the Academy of Arts in Belgrade, the capital of Yugoslavia. To promote art education, she founded the Hong Kong Visual Arts Magazine with her fellow schoolmates from CUHK in 2012. Inspired by ancient and modern cultures, most recently Jor has dedicated herself to creating figures from corn husks, such as the flying apsaras in Dunhuang that she first made in 2019.
