This body of work by Karen Yank is an artistic acknowledgment of Yank’s mentor, the great American artist Agnes Martin. Yank and Martin were great friends, and Martin was a large inspiration on Yank’s artistic vision. This particular body of Yank’s work was inspired by Yank’s revisiting her mentor’s works at a recent exhibition at the Guggenheim.
Trained as a master sculptor working in steel and other metals, Yank manages to create a soft, organic feeling with industrial materials.
