Renqian Yang

Born: 1987

Hometown: Xiangtan, Hunan Province, China

Lives and Works: Canton, New York

 

Renqian Yang obtained her B.F.A. in Ceramics from the Sichuan Fine Arts Institute, Chongqing in 2009 and her M.F.A. in Ceramics from Syracuse University in 2014. Currently, she lives and works in Oswego, New York as an artist and Assistant Professor at State University of New York at Oswego. Yang’s work has continued to exhibit in the U.S.A. and China. Her recent exhibitions include: Renqian Yang: Construct Deconstruction, Ceramic Art Avenue Art Gallery, Jingdezhen, China (2018); Renqian Yang: Complementary Colors, Fou Gallery, New York (2016); The Almighty Cup: A National Juried and Invitational Exhibition, Gandee Gallery, Syracuse (2016); Rare Earth: National Ceramics Exhibition, Cabrillo Gallery, Aptos, California (2016). In January 2017, she had her first solo exhibition in New York at Fou Gallery. She used to be residency artist at Jindezhen International Studio (2018) and Watershed Center for the Ceramic Arts (2017).

Yang is interested in the concept of binaries. Her work addresses the unity and the contradiction of dichotomies: restriction and freedom; pessimism and optimism; complexity and simplicity; representation and abstraction; the man-made world and the natural world. At the same time, her work explores how an individual is related to nature, society, and oneself. Yang combines both traditional and nontraditional methods in her practices. While focusing on ceramics, her work also extends to installation, sculpture, drawing, painting, video and functional ware.
