Karen Yank – Yielding
Dimensions: 24 x 60 x 2″ finished size
Medium: steel and stainless steel
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.
