Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

The work belongs to a series that Yang created at the Craigardan Residency in the Adirondack Mountains. The Craigardan Residency provides a collaborative platform for artists. The farmhouse between the mountains of Adirondack brings together creators from different fields, including artists, writers, and chefs. Living in a mountain that is completely away from busy city life, Yang began to explore a new rhythm of creation, returning to the material itself. She added paper pulp to the liquid clay then drying the clay; this process improved plasticity of the clay. In the new body of works, she returns to simply colors, adding only a small amount of black, red, cobalt, yellow ocher, etc. She also explores the limit of materials. Light, clay, water, the spirit of the mountains, as well as the traces of hands fully reflected in these sculptures. The pieces are so thin and fragile, almost transparent, as if light will pass through.

杨人倩这个系列的陶瓷作品在阿迪朗达克(Adirondack)山脉Craigardan驻地艺术项目创作。Craigardan驻地项目为艺术家提供一个共同创作的平台,这个位于阿迪朗达克群山之间的农庄汇集了不同领域的创作者,包括艺术家,作家,厨师等。在一种与现代都市忙碌节奏完全相反的山中生活,杨人倩开始探索一种新的创作节奏,回归材料本身,在瓷泥制作过程里加入纸浆来提高其可塑性,以纯色为主,只加入少量的黑、红、钴、赭,等色料,用一种缓慢而专注的状态挑战材料和造型本身的局限。在这些陶瓷作品中,可以看到自然的光、泥、水、山留下的痕迹。手的痕迹与造型融合,纱一般的轻薄,光一般的透明,山一般的延绵在这些雕塑上充分体现。杨人倩一直对二元对立非常感兴趣,关注对立属性的矛盾和统一,而这次山间特殊的创造环境,让她的关注点更为内化,在内心和外界的关联,简单的色彩和造型中寻找内与外,动与静,轻与重,浓与淡的平衡。

Artist Profile

Born: 1987

Hometown: Xiangtan, Hunan Province, China

Based in: Canton, New York

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.

杨人倩 2009年在四川美术学院陶瓷专业毕业后,赴美就读于雪城大学(Syracuse University)艺术设计学院陶瓷系 ,并在2014年取得艺术硕士。毕业后,杨曾先后任教于雪城大学,卡泽诺维亚学院(Cazenovia College), 和圣劳伦斯大学(St. Lawrence University )。 目前,她工作和创作于纽约州奥斯威戈,并在纽约州立大学奥斯威戈分校(SUNY Oswego)教授陶瓷。她的作品曾在美国,中国等地展出。近期展览包括:杨人倩个展(卡尤加历史与艺术博物馆,纽约州奥本市,2019);兰昭形与杨人倩:山间(否画廊,纽约,2019);杨人倩:构建解构(陶溪川美术馆,中国景德镇,2018),杨人倩:对比(否画廊,纽约,2016),珍稀泥土—全国陶瓷雕塑展(卡布里略画廊,阿普托斯,加州,2016)。2017年1月她在纽约否画廊举办个展《对比》。她曾在Craigardan,景德镇国际工作室,和Watershed陶瓷艺术中心参加驻地艺术家项目。

杨人倩对事物的二元对立非常感兴趣。她的作品关注对立属性的矛盾和统一,如束缚与自由,复杂与简单,具象和抽象,人造和自然,悲观和乐观。与此同时,她通过作品探讨人与自然、社会、及自我的关系。杨人倩一直积极地运用传统技法和实验材料进行跨界创作。在主要使用粘土进行创作的同时,她还探索了装置,雕塑,纤维,混合材料,绘画,多媒体,以及实用陶瓷等领域,挑战固有规则和传统,不断寻找陶瓷与其它材料的创新结合。
