Hui-Chu Ying: Prayers
January 22-February 29, 2008
Hui-Chu Ying uses her artistic interests to address the challenges of war, disasters, illness, intolerance, and loss. Marshalling a variety of media such as painting, drawing, etching, screen-printing and collage, she creates large-scale installations that offer a space for meditation and communication.
Hui-Chu is an Associate Professor of Art at the University of Akron's Myers School of Art.
" We learn to nurture and embrace one another, to cope with the loss of loved ones, and to endure obstacles. The best medicine for healing the wounds that life throws at us is the offer of hope and courage. Helping one another to develop empathy, tolerance, patience and humility is one of life's greatest gifts."
- Hui-Chu Ying
