‘Intimate’ by Jiang Chao

‘Intimate’ by Jiang Chao


Jiang Chao’s roots are ingrained at the traditional region of Shandong,  an area that has had a legendary influence on the culture of China and the world. This is a region that holds a long tradition of continuous cultivation of beautiful forms and texture providing a constant search for the aesthetic form that will please the eyes, mind and the spirit.

Chao’s art is very much based on traditional Chinese methods, using watercolour and ancient Chinese Proverbs as a way of representing his art.

In his later works, Chao has focused on the intimacy between woman and nature. It is a very close relationship whereby the Chinese believe woman to be represented by Yin and the holder of water, where nature is stronger and more complete.

This relationship has led to a vast number of legends and stories on the “nature of woman” or, as we have heard in the west, of Mother Nature.  It goes deeper in Jiang Chao’s art, revealing in his very elegant way the “nature of woman” in her numerous delicate forms, on an exquisite canvas.
