Yuan is a Canadian artist and designer born in Shanghai, China.
She is interested in experimenting and making pictures with combined techniques.
Growing up in big cities, she developed a fascination for nocturnal scenes and brutalist architecture, which, together with her innate fondness of nature and animals, builds up an interesting contrast that can be frequently observed in her work. Influenced by the ancient Chinese philosophy, she constantly explores the Taoism concept of ‘relative opposites’, creating poetic and imaginary worlds that embrace a moment of tranquillity and chaos, mingle luminosity with darkness, imply subtle movement from stillness.
She takes the process of creating a way to discover the invisible rhythm of this world and her relationship with it. Through her work, she would like to share her proper way of seeing and her meditation on ‘what is reality’.
