Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

I started this painting before moving from Montreal to London and finished it after moving from London to Barcelona. Moving days are always a transitional period for me. During these days, I frequently feel that I am in the middle of somewhere. It was exactly this mood that led to the initial idea of this painting.
I wanted to express a blend of sentiments: staying in a place where I feel I no longer belonged and imagining a future where I had no idea what would happen. The hustle and bustle, uncertainty and expectation, together brought chaotic yet exciting moments to my life; a riot of emotions. All these were later conveyed through vibrant colours, intensive textures, and heavy brush strokes. In the final painting, we see some penguins in the jungle, a place where most penguins don’t belong. They seem to be confused by their rapidly-changing surroundings – it is not at all what they expected, yet despite the unpredictable, the shape of something promising is coming up.

Artist Profile

Born: 1985

Hometown: Shanghai

Based in: Luxembourg

Yuan is a self-taught 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’.
