Yang Sirui was born in Nanjing, the ancient capital of the Six Dynasties of China. She used to describe herself as a Martian, but now she has officially left the "planet" and embarked on a journey into "space".

"I currently live and study in Nanjing, China and Naarm/Melbourne, Australia. Not yet an artist but for sure a creative thinker & practitioner. So I am on the way to be. "

Current art practices encompass drawing and painting, digital illustration, photography also installation art.  She gradually discovered that innocence (natural essence) and profound (complexity), through spontaneous thinking and interdisciplinary exploration, form a complementary relationship in her creation. As far as Sirui is concerned, this kind of complementarity in contemporary fields, especially the collision between human civilization and nature, inspires Sirui to find the eternity belonging to the ontology in the ever-changing environment. 

杨(Yang)思睿(Sirui),出生于中国六朝古都 —— 南京。她曾形容自己是个“火星人”,但她已正式离开了自己的“星球”并从此踏上了太空之旅。

 

“我目前在中国南京和澳大利亚 Naarm /墨尔本生活和学习。我还不是一名艺术家,但肯定是一个有创造力的思想实践者。所以我正在‘路上’。”

当前的艺术实践涵盖绘画、插画、摄影以及装置艺术等。

Sirui通过自发的思考和跨学科的探索,逐渐发现纯真(自然的本质)和深刻(事物的错综复杂性)在她的创作中形成了一种互补的关系。对于目前的Sirui而言,当代领域中的这类互补, 尤其演变为人类文明与自然之间的碰撞, 启发着Sirui去变化万千的环境中寻找着属于本体的永恒。
