Yan´s art often brings together the contradictions of Eastern and Western artistic languages with the intention of formulating a conversation between the profound and the playful, the ancient and the contemporary.  His current investigations have examined these contrasts through stereotypes, primordial effigies and male / female archetypes. He uses a geometrical vocabulary which alludes to and articulates the physical and metaphysical worlds which bridge the sacred and profane aspects of life.
