Cai Jin
Chinese, b. 1965
Follow

It was on a trip to her hometown in eastern China that artist Cai Jin discovered the motif that would be at the center of her career: the banana plant. Upon the discovery of a wilting plant hidden among weeds, she took two rolls of photographs, which she would carry with her as inspiration for years to come. Since then she has explored the theme in more than 200 paintings of the plant, mostly in oils with a psychedelic rainbow of pink, purple, blue, and her signature red. Rather than literal subject matter, the banana plant has become and emblem for Cai, though which she explores ideas of beauty, fertility, and sexuality.
