Item Description

IconCaretDown

There are inevitably contradictions between the global expansion of cities and the environment . While many leave the rural area for cities in search of greater opportunities, there is a certain nostalgia for the natural landscapes they leave behind. As cities expand, the growing sprawl offers controlled representations of nature. Fake rocks, mountains and rivers build the illusion that we are still surrounded by nature. Yet ironically, this sprawl creates environmental degradation as a result. These works represent the clash through intentional use of colors and forms. Repetitive marks, busy texture, bright saturated colors show the chaotic transformation of urban life.

From one angle the fragile form may be reminiscent of organic shapes like corals, yet the alien colors accentuate human intervention in nature. But from another perspective one might see heavy and sharp manmade architecture with soft natural colors. Each perspective provokes new insights from the viewer. The chaos that emerges between the heavy angular control of urban life is juxtaposed with delicate organic expansion. Harsh monolithic geometries jut out into slowly decaying organic forms pockmarked with corruption. Like flowers that sprout from solid rocks and slowly spread, the series captures the frozen moment of blossoming in opposition to manmade constraints and the harmony that emerge in the uncontrolled chaos.

全球城市化进程与环境问题产生了不可避免的矛盾。许多人离开了偏远乡村来到城市寻找更多机会,他们同时也还留存对于自然的眷恋。城市的扩张蔓延为被束缚的自然提供了环境,人造山石与河流环绕人们,假想仍然被自然环绕。而这种扩张却带来了环境的恶化。这一系列作品通过色彩和形状来表现城市发展与自然环境之间的冲突。不断重复的笔触、繁复的质感和高度饱和的色彩表现着城市生活的杂乱无章。

一方面,这些脆弱的形态可以看作是对类似珊瑚的自然有机形态的诠释,而这些古怪的色彩却又强调了人类对于自然环境的强加干预;换一个角度观察,观者可能会认为这些形状是带着温柔自然色的沉重尖利的人为建筑。每一个视角都会给观者带来新的见解。从城市生活的粗犷棱角与纤弱的自然扩张的对比中产生了一种杂乱无章。尖利巨大的几何体转化成为被麻点侵蚀的有机形态。就像鲜花从水泥缝隙中坚韧生长并绽放一般,这一系列作品抓住了自然在人为限制中盛放的那一瞬。

Artist Profile

Born: 1987

Hometown: Xiangtan, Hunan Province, China

Lives and Works: 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。
