Shen Yuan (1959) is one of the few female Chinese artists who has broken into the international art world. In all her work she shows that cultures constantly influence each other, but that you do not have to deny your background. In her work you always find traces of traditional Chinese art combined with impressive craftsmanship. All this fits seamlessly with Hindeloopen’s distinctive, and yet open culture.
