Cai Jin

b. 1965, China

Cai Jin first came to prominence in the early 1990s with the first of the long series of Beauty Banana paintings, richly painted studies of a dying tropical plant that obsessed her for many years. After a decade in New York, she returned to China in 2007. Shortly thereafter the mood of her paintings lightened as the references to forms from the natural world slowly dissipated, leading to the lyrical abstractions that she refers to as Landscapes. Evocative of submarine landscapes or cloud-filled skies, Cai Jin's Landscapes verge on abstraction without totally abandoning their origin in the world she observes around her.
