Yin Zhaoyang rose to prominence in the late 1990s as a leading figure in the artists of his generation who expressed loss, hesitation and the cruelties of youth. As he evolved as an artist, he presented a more complicate and extensive spiritual world. He has developed a highly personalized approach to landscape paintings exploring the relations between individuals and society, the history and the present.
Rebuilding Ideals, an exhibition at the Tang Contemporary Art Museum in Beijing's 798 Art Zone and curated by Cui Cancan, reviews Yin's creation and methods of thinking over more than two decades. Through tracing his career, one can learn the evolution and pursuits of one artist and his generation. The exhibition runs until May 5.
