Jackie Jiang is interested in portraying the unspeakable and intangible feelings she experiences in her daily life through the language of art, mainly ink and acrylic on paper media. Drawing inspiration from the ancient Chinese calligraphy style known as Cao Shu, her work reveals abstract scribbles and expressive brushstrokes that convey a deceptive sense of lightheartedness. Jackie’s artistic process revolves around uncovering the profound connections between contemporary art and traditional Chinese calligraphy, exploring the boundless possibilities that arise from their fusion. This exploration manifests in her vibrant colour palettes and intuitive forms, inviting viewers into a visual realm where the past merges seamlessly with the present.

Inspired by the rich heritage of traditional Chinese calligraphy, Jackie Jiang draws upon the expressive power of brushwork and the harmonious balance between positive and negative spaces. Her abstract scribbles and expressive brushstrokes convey a sense of controlled chaos, reflecting the interplay between freedom and discipline inherent in her artistic process. Each mark on the paper becomes a conduit for her emotions, offering a glimpse into her inner world and inviting viewers to embark on their own personal journey of introspection.
