Whitestone Gallery Taipei is honored to hold the solo exhibition “Color Universe” by Chinese artist Jiang Miao. This exhibition will not only showcase the new 2020 works, alongside her most signature series, a new set of creation will also be presented for the first time.
Jiang Miao was born in 1981 in Jilin, China. Majoring in Prints and Multiples, Jiang Miao had both her Bachelor’s and Master’s degree awarded by Central Academy of Fine Art. Breathing naturally in her background of fine arts painting and academic practicing from different genres, such as realism depiction and prints, and after years of adapting different creative techniques and approaches, Jiang Miao has built up her recognition and character through her unique sculpting techniques. By utilizing print carving tools and constructing intricate layers of colorful acrylic works of art, she demonstrates her authentic art world experience.
Each piece of her works contains a richness of more than twenty layers of creation. Depending on the sunlight, breeze, air, and warmness at the moment, with her hands holding the carving knifes she records her deep feelings, gathers power and color in each layer of her paints, and further unwraps a very exclusive journey of time traveling. Elements from the past transform her production, breaking the boundary between second and third dimensions. Time and space have been preserved, visualized, and become tangible. Unlike traditional two-dimensional expressions, her invention is deep and vivid, broadening to a mysterious three-dimensional universe. Take the example of Jiang Miao’s “Taoist Trinity and the Self”, how she interprets each stroke, surface, and hue from her creation are comparable to a continuing life circle and universe, where all the cells and elements keep being rejuvenated and reborn.
Through her study of Eastern philosophy and ascetic practice, she carries on self-reflection and self-enlightenment, aiming to discover the cosmos in her nutshell of an inner world and to explore the secrets of life and the cycles from earth and nature. Whether art or not, whether landscape or not, Jiang Miao’s artworks embrace infinite time, space, and its aura. Hence, the audience can feel the energy of life spoken in her unique language and symbols.
