Jia Aili

Aug 21, 2012


The Singapore Art Museum currently presents Seeker of Hope: Works by Jia Aili – an exhibition of works by Jia Aili, whose artworks are a reflection on the dramatic changes in Chinese society after 2000.

Born in a time of open economy and increasing prosperity in China, Jia Aili represents a young generation worried about losing age old traditions and values in a fast evolving world, questioning the true meaning of life. The solitary figures in his epic-scale and visually stunning works seem to be searching for hope amidst the ruins of modern civilisation. In the midst of his desolate landscapes, there exists a yearning and hope for a possibility of redemption and saving.

Seeker of Hope: Works by Jia Aili showcases Jia’s works ranging from monumental oil paintings and installations, to delicate paper works.
