About the Artist

RUONAN YAN is a visual artist based in Brooklyn, NY. She was born and raised in China. She received her BFA degree in graphic design in 2013, and MFA degree in drawing from the New York Academy of Art in 2016. 

Ruonan's art is influenced significantly from her Asian background. She has enjoyed drawing figures and portraits from a young age, using sumi ink on rice paper - two very traditional Chinese materials. She enjoys the process more than the result. Ruonan takes her ink figure drawing as an experiment of exploring different compositions; her figure drawings are more like combinations of dots, lines and shapes.

Artist Statement - "Selfscapes"

"I make art to help people feel good about themselves. I hope to bring the human experience out of modernity and into the timeless and the natural. I make this art because I have long found many of my problems to be rooted in social norms and cultural expectations. I never feel more liberated than when I am away from civilization, in the solitude of nature. I created this series with acrylic paint on ceramic tiles. Some tiles are figurative while others are simple landscapes. 

I made these pieces shortly after leaving London for rural living in Japan. I lived in nature, far away from a city, without internet, biking for long periods of time to buy food and bring home water. This was an introspective chapter of my life, one in which I became deeply connected to nature and my inner emotions. To me, these pieces represent a balance between inner and outer landscapes, between the emotional and the physical."
