Arty-Fact: “One must read ten thousand books and walk ten thousand miles before one is fit to paint” - an ancient proverb which Ting took literally by surrounding himself with literature as a child.

“One thing I realize now is that the ladies that I read of then are the same ones I created today in my art. They are not in real life, but rather what I see in my heart.”

Emanating a universal beauty, Ting’s women convey tenderness toward a child, a friend, an animal, a work of art or just the open space before them. To achieve this, Ting uses a vast array of colour to project his feelings [Source: NYMUSEUM].

A great example of Ting’s craftsmanship can be found in “Friendship Along the River.” Here a dark lady wearing a Javanese batik sarong crowns a fair maiden wrapped only in ribbons and beads. This occurs in a dragon boat with woven reed sails and a shark’s fin rudder. The elongated figures convey a joy of the occasion and are full of love and humanity [Source: "Yunnan School: A Renaissance in Chinese Painting" by Joan Lebold Cohen].
