Galleria Bulevardi 7 is pleased to present a solo painting exhibition by Chinese international artist Canal Cheong-Jagerroos, featuring about 40 pieces of her recent works. Born in 1968 in Macau/China into an artistic family, Canal has won international recognition and acclaim for her unique motifs of blending ancient and modern elements together. Canal Cheong-Jagerroos is an artist with roots in Chinese traditional painting and according to the old traditional way she uses ink and rice paper as her primary mediums. Her works are mostly inspired by ancient Chinese philosophies, poems, nature and seasons. In addition the very special cultural experience of having lived in 7 different countries in the last 15 years from Asia to Europe and Africa to Scandinavia permeates her later works. Canal Cheong-Jagerroos has been a Premiere Portfolio Artist at absolutearts.com since 2007.
When looking at Canal’s paintings, one cannot help but feel drawn into the mystical realm where love, joy and freedom meet in harmony. All elements in her paintings, be it the main object or a small detail, are painstakingly worked on with equal devotion. She paints on multiple layers of rice paper with acrylic, ink and Chinese pigment eventually incorporating these together using mixed medium to derive a sense of depth on canvas.
As the artist own description that the process of painting is like magic to her. It captivates and enthrals her, filling her with boundless energy. She strongly believes a painting should speak for itself; it should communicate with the viewer in its own language.
Since 1986, Canal has held numerous solo and selected exhibitions in different countries, namely, Macau, France, Italy, Switzerland, Africa, Germany, Sweden and USA.
