Cindy Ng


Wu Shaoying

Cindy Ng (b.1966, Macao, China) currently lives and works in Beijing, China. Ng explores the life of ink through a variety of forms and attempts to liberate ink from its subservience to the brush and its long-standing purpose as a vehicle for text and images. By carefully manipulating the flow of ink and its corollaries and descendants, Ng brings ink to other mediums, including video, photography, paper, and oil painting, and creates compositions of near symmetry between the movement in her paintings and ink’s natural shifting form. 

Ng has won several awards for her ink video installations, including the 10th “V-art” International Video-Art Festival, Italy. Her major exhibitions include solo exhibitions at Today Art Museum Beijing, China; Seattle Art Museum, Seattle; Ju Ming Museum and Taipei Fine Arts Museum, Taiwan. She has participated in major group exhibitions, including the video art exhibition Flower of Chaos at the Veneto Videoart Archive in Italy, the 6th Annual Chinese Making Waves Contemporary Art Exhibition in Taiwan, and the Athens Video Art Festival in Greece. 

Her work is collected by institutions and commercial enterprises around the world, including Taiwan Museum of Art in Taiwan, Macau Art Museum, Today Art Museum in Beijing, as well as Intercontinental Hotel in Suzhou,  Four Seasons and Grand Kempinski Hotels in Shanghai, Peninsula Hotel in Paris and many others.
