澳大利亞藝術家Ruth Li的作品喚起了夢幻般的烏托邦幻想，同時表現出一種不安全和脆弱的感覺。Li利用她的雕塑和灌輸作為隱喻，探索傳統和多元文化的美的概念，作為精神和崇高的跨文化語言。Li於2013年在澳大利亞國立藝術學院獲得美術學士學位（榮譽），並由MAY SPACE Sydney代理。她目前在澳大利亞，台灣和她在中國景德鎮的工作室之間分配時間。她被邀請到中國，台灣，日本，泰國，土耳其和澳大利亞參加展覽，主持研討會和會談。Li的作品由中國景德鎮的桃溪川博物館，土耳其阿瓦諾斯的古瑞博物館以及內夫謝希爾市的公共收藏品收藏。
Australian artist Ruth Li’s works evoke dream-like utopian fantasies while projecting a feeling of insecurity and fragility. Li utilizes her sculptures and instillations as metaphor to explore tradition and multicultural concepts of beauty as a cross-cultural language in to the spiritual and the sublime. Li finished her Bachelor of Fine Arts (honours) at the National Art School in 2013 and is represented by MAY SPACE Sydney. She currently divides her time between Australia, Taiwan, and her studio in Jingdezhen, China. Li has since been invited to exhibit, host workshops and talks in China, Taiwan, Japan, Thailand, Turkey and Australia. Li’s works are collected by Taoxichuan Museum in Jingdezhen, China, Guray Museum in Avanos, Turkey as well as the Nevsehir City’s public collection.
