Landscapes and One-stroke Paintings
“Treasure the use of brush and ink, pursue the meaning and fun aspect of paintings.”
“Keep the tip of the brush always moving within the middle of the stroke. Water and ink have their own rhythm and movement that change without limit.”
“One brush, no change, to complete a painting in one go.”
“Painting is vivid like a dragon. Human figures are full of spirit like a tiger.”
—Chan Shi Wen, ‘The characteristics of Ting Yin Yung’s paintings’ (1973)
“Some critics have noted that the landscape paintings of Ting Yin Yung are the least pure and childlike of his works. On the other hand, they also best demonstrate his artistic technique. While his landscape paintings are inherited from Bada Shanren, Ting’s works are even more exaggerated and abstract . . . the landscape paintings express a simple world in his heart and mind.” —Tang Wai Hung, ‘Viewing Ting Yin Yung’s paintings’ (1987)
“Ting Yin Yung emphasised the combined inheritance of poetry, calligraphy, paintings and seals, while he tirelessly worked at his use of brush and ink, as well as at understanding the core meanings of Chinese culture and civilisation. His later works expressed his unique style and spirit, especially his innocence and childlike brushstrokes filled with humour.”
—Kao Mayching, ‘The Art of Ting Yin Yung in Hong Kong’ (2009)
