Jade Ching-yuk Ng, I is Another, Cornucopia, London (12 April-2 May 2021)

Jade Ching-yuk Ng's (Unit 7, Studio 7-225) solo exhibition I is another at Cornucopia, in partnership with the Sassoon Gallery, runs from 12 April-2 May 2021 with a Private View on Friday 16 April, 6-10pm.

"Cornucopia is proud to present our first solo exhibition with new paintings by Jade Ching-yuk Ng. Her soft, intricate works emboss the fragility of a physical intimate relationship between herself and others. Jade is interested in quoting the essence of touch and separation at a moment in time. By exploring the possibilities of forms in painting, Jade conceives of her paintings as an assembly of her and others’ body puzzles. Often revolving around personal travel experience, classical myth, alchemy, religious rituals and anatomy as references, Jade deconstructs their symbolism by attaching her own interpretation, and her symbols seem to depart from their literal connotations into an obscure and ambiguous fiction. The agency of framing becomes a gesture of embracing, defining actual and pictorial surrealistic space.

The essence of modernist architecture influences how she constructs and adds odds to her composition in the picture. She develops them into printmaking, painting, sculptural painting and the most recent cut-outs. Its theatricality encourages visitors to consider characters that are depicted in dialogue with themselves, whilst also considering the fine edge of collision in reality and imagination."
