Lili Yuan Miss Montreal
Oil on Wood, 15 x 15 inches
Lili Yuan is a young artist with the spirit of an insightful old master. Her work at the Cummer Museum consists of carefully crafted oil painted studies of flowers found specifically in the Museum's unique gardens. As a self-taught artist, her greatest passions in life - travel and photography - influence her arts with a unique hyper realistic touch. Yuan puts her heart and soul into every detail and it is evident in every piece of art she creates.
Yuan states: “For this floral series, I focused on a singular subject rather than a broader view so people can witness the striking details that would be overlooked otherwise. I tried to capture the wildest and most organic floral resting in their most natural habitat to show the power of nature.”
