|Opening of Abandon: Carlos Sebastiá Solo exhibition May 10th 2014!
The photographic exhibition “Abandon” by Carlos Sebastiá seeks to highlight the implicit meaning behind often seen images of neglect and decay.

ART PARIS 2014 Grand Palais / March 27th – 30th Booth : G5
|Jiali Gallery is pleased to announce its participation to Art Paris 2014. Please come and visit our booth (G5) and discover the work of 4 Chinese artists : Ma Yongfeng, Guo Peng, Ren bo and Cindy Ng Sio Leng.
Ma Yonfeng, Guo Peng and Ren Bo are part of the « Post 70’s generation ». Growing up in a fast-developing society, usually with Western impacts in every aspect of life, Chinese artists born in the 1970s tend to reflect the world with their own unique artistic styles and viewpoints. Compared with artists born in the 1950s and early 1960s, they have a different relationship to their history and the West. They are less constrained by ‘Chinese characteristics’ and more open to dialogue.
Cindy Ng Sio Ieng was born in Macau in the 60’s. She is nurtured by her travels around the world. In her oeuvre, ink and paper are not simply sacred tools of tradition; they have become both the signifier and signified of the dialogue between the work, the artist, and the contemporary world she inhabits.

Cindy Ng Sio Ieng video series screening Nov 30th 2013!
|Jiali Gallery is pleased to present Cindy Ng Sio Ieng video series on Saturday, Nov 30 2013 from 6 to 8 pm!
« It is the desire to capture ink in motion that inspired Cindy Ng Sio Ieng video series, in which ink is given a life of its own, unrestrained by the brush. It is through its movement and dilution with water that the ink is altered in its tonality. Forms and patterns emerge from the formlessness of ink. Different layers of translucency show various degrees of viscosity and blackness. The ink can also disperse like smoke and quickly become transparent. These forms are also captured in her photographs and works on rice paper and canvas…”
Opening of MindScapes: Cindy Ng Sio leng solo exhibition 09.11.2013
|Jiali Gallery is pleased to present MindScapes : Cindy Ng Sio leng solo exhibition.
“In Cindy’s oeuvre, ink and paper are not simply eternal, sacred tools of tradition; they have become both the signifier and signified of the dialogue between the work, the artist, and the contemporary world she inhabits. In her hands, the classic black and white of ink on paper is complemented with a varied palette, including shades of gray, green, yellow, blue, and violet, delicately mixed in a subtle yet unexpected way to create abstract forms and landscapes of the mind…”

Opening of “As Body and Shadow” Guo Peng solo exhibition June 22nd 2013!
|Opening of “As Body and Shadow” Guo Peng solo exhibition June 22nd 2013!
In photography, people seize the moment to witness the restlessness of time. Photography seems to reach for another world – eternity – by displaying fragility. In Guo Peng’s thinking, he enhances the fragility of photos on purpose to make them look more precious at the moment. The world that looks old, in another perspective, may get closer to eternity.
