Her paintings are inspired by ancient Chinese murals, cultural heritage, and craftsmanship. Yuran strives to establish a dialogue bridge between the past and the present in her artwork. Rooted in the challenge to anthropocentrism, she delves into the personification of vanished objects and artefacts. Additionally, her works also encompass the depiction of traces of human activities, which serve as containers of temporal and spatial memories. For instance, she combines ancient three-colour pottery horse figurines with contemporary plastic and felt toy horses for children, illustrating the functional transformation of Jue.
