By revealing the connection between the artistic concept and practice of Ting Yin Yung’s seal carving, this talk aims to provide a new perspective for understanding his art. Before learning to carve seals at the age of 59, Ting developed his artistic philosophy of seal carving. He advanced his familiarity with seal carving by collecting and studying ancient seals and by referring back to his high achievements in calligraphy and Western and Chinese painting. This talk will discuss Ting’s artistic philosophy for seal carving and explore how this model is reflected in his practice through an analysis of his seals.
