Ying-Yueh Chuang received a diploma of Fine Arts from Langara College, a BFA from Emily Carr University of Art and Design, and a MFA in Ceramics from NSCAD University. She taught ceramics at NSCAD University, OCAD University, Sheridan College, University of Regina, Capilano University and Langara College. She has been teaching at Kwantlen Polytechnic University since 2014. She has exhibited locally, nationally and internationally and has received many grants and awards. Her work is found in many public and private collections and has been featured in many publications such as Art in America, Ceramic Review, Ceramics Art and Perception, Ceramic Monthly and others.
Chuang’s collections of fruits, plants, bones, vegetables, sea creatures, images of places, object and textures are a source of inspiration for her work in the studio. Her building process, inspired by the hybrid of plant structure and marine creatures, creates imagined objects and spaces. The series of ceramic work she has developed focus on form, structure, texture and colour. By observing plant life closely, she has noticed that forms in nature repeat their structure within themselves and with the environment to create patterns. The repetition of the + (cross) forming a grid system is a representation of microcosm in macrocosm.
