Perspective Projection is a series of sculpture, which is not about the actual representation of reality but about the relationships among human beings, urban space and the society. The series explores the multifaceted emotions within these relationships. Each side of the sculptures employs different textures, colors and brushstrokes to reveal different characteristics. While each side is different, together they form contrasts and connections. It is like the scenes your eyes capture when hurrying through the streets and crowds. Every side represents its own unique time and space. Viewers will not be able to see all the sides from one fixed perspective. While other sides are partially visible through certain angles, viewers may be driven by curiosity to move around and examine each side of the work. It shows that we are used to see the world and ourselves from one single perspective but inevitably, we are curious about the opposite viewpoint. Based on the complementary colors, the sculptures feature artificial and repetitive brushstrokes to emphasize the combination of urban landscape and the nature, which is defined by the changing colors and curved lines. These series of sculptures are contradiction formed by the juxtaposition of the urban and natural sensations.

Renqian Yang earned 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 the State University of New York at Oswego. Yang’s work has continued to exhibit in the U.S. and China. Her recent exhibitions include: Renqian Yang, Cayuga Museum of History and Art, Auburn, New York (2019); Renqian Yang and Lan Zhaoxing: Between Mountains, Fou Gallery, New York (2019); Renqian Yang: Construct Deconstruction, Taoxichuan Ceramic Art Avenue Art Gallery, Jingdezhen, China (2018); Renqian Yang: Complementary Colors, Fou Gallery, New York (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 served as a residency artist at Craigardan (2018), Jingdezhen International Studio (2018), and the 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 primarily focusing on ceramics, her work also extends to installation, sculpture, drawing, painting, video and functional everyday objects.
