Born in 1983 in Shandong Province, China, Ju Ting graduated with a BA in Printmaking from the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing in 2007, followed by an MFA in Printmaking in 2013.
The now Beijing-based abstract artist took interest in fusing painting and sculpture into her work and the eradication of boundaries between the mediums. By applying thick coats of paint and then slicing surface layers, Ju revealed layers underneath to give depth to the canvas, bringing them to the sculptural realm. Her utilization of the elasticity of acrylic and gravity to create dapped, torn or layered texture in her works brings forth a sense of material reality to audiences.
