This volume documents phase two of Chinese artist Yang Shaobin's look at the labor conditions of northern China coalminers, which he undertook from 2004-2008. It includes Yang's mixed media works--oil paintings, installation, video and sculpture--and accounts of his team's experiences in these isolated coalmining communities, and further materials providing sociological context.

Yang Shaobin: Chinese Artists of TodayYang Shaobin: Chinese Artists of Today

Published by Blue Kingfisher.
Text by Pi Li.

Born in 1963 in Hebei Province, China, Yang Shaobin makes realistic figurative paintings that often disintegrate into Francis Bacon-esque Surrealism. An untitled work from 2007, for example, depicts a man's head floating disembodied on a large dried-blood-colored canvas. The top of the man's head is rendered realistically, but the bottom half of his face is obfuscated by expressionistic whirls of paint. "DNA" (2005), however, is a Social Realist-style tableaux of historical figures arranged in front of a bright blue sky. Though he began his career as a realist, Yang began experimenting with this present hybrid of realism and abstraction in 1998. Critic Sebastian Preuss has written of Yang's style: "His deep pictorial pathos impressively contradicts Neo-Pop, which predominates in all Western countries..." This oversized, slipcased volume is a survey of the highlights of his work to date, and includes an essay by critic Pi Li.
