SIN-YING HO 何善影
ABOUT THE ARTWORK
Combining traditional technique from Jingdezhen, painting style that flourished in the Ming Dynasty of China and computer decal transfer technique to transfer modern cultural symbols and images, Sin-ying Ho’s works reflect the impact of globalization on the cultural borrowings and interactions in an accelerated “global village.”
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Sin-Ying Ho is a Chinese ceramic artist based in Flushing, New York City. Her immigrant status and her artistic connections with Jingdezhen, the “Porcelain Capital” of China, have enabled her to create ceramic sculptures through traditional Chinese techniques while also infusing them with a contemporary sensibility. Her artworks are known for their classical forms as well as more modern forms that evoke cubism and abstract expressionism. Ho’s pieces are in the permanent collections in several institutions, including Icheon World Ceramic Centre in Korea, Glenbow Museum in Canada, Burlington Art Centre in Canada, Yingge Ceramics Museum in Taiwan, and Guangdong Museum of Art, China. Her piece Music served as the cover image of the book Utopic Impulses: Contemporary Ceramics Practice (Ronsdale Press 2007).
