Along the Road of Dreams
Kathryn Markel Fine Arts
New York, New York

Opening Reception October 20th, 6-8pm

Yolanda Sánchez's wildly expressionistic brushwork is infused with the elegant control of calligraphy and grounded by the quiet of negative space. There is a dancer's rhythm to her work, celebrating gestural mark-making, the harmony of opposing forces, and the physicality of the paint itself. There are consistent references to nature, but each piece remains independent from narrative. Instead, Sánchez translates and projects emotional and sensory experiences. Subject and object are dissolved and replaced by a presence without form. While she is influenced by Eastern philosophy and Asian art forms, Sánchez honors her Caribbean culture while considering herself a traveler roaming across borders. The dynamic energies, respect for nature, and spiritualities that connect and transcend cultures unites her work, offering praise to the world. Her latest pieces will be on view in her show, "Along the Road of Dreams."
