PENLAND SCHOOL OF CRAFTS, August 9-21, 2020

Sense of Place: Exploring the Landscape through Abstraction
August 9-21, 2020

Penland School of Crafts, Spruce Pine, North Carolina

 
The emphasis of our class is on intimate encounter with the landscape, cultivating awareness and presence, learning to translate what we see into a sensory experience that is then transferred to a two-dimensional composition in paint. How we arrange light, color, shape and space in relationship determines a certain quality of abstraction.  We will begin to develop a visual abstract language in various ways, from working in the landscape and in the studio to playing with materials other than paint.  Our goal is to understand something beyond the physical elements of the landscape, using nature as a way to express something internal, creating a poetic response.

The Intensest Rendezvous
New Work by Yolanda Sánchez

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts, New York, New York
February 14 - March 23, 2019
Opening Reception: Thursday, February 14th, 6-8pm

The title of this series of works takes its name from Wallace Stevens’ poem, Final Soliloquy of the Interior Paramour.  
 
No one-to-one relationship is attempted here between painting and poetry, but simply a desire to reflect Stevens’ notion of relationship in a general sense.  A relationship between the outer world and the inner one, that is, “the intensest rendezvous.”   In this rendezvous, an experience of enlightenment takes place in which “…we collect ourselves, out of all the indifferences, into one thing.”  The poem is a beacon of light and hope, of those things that are good in the world.  It echoes what I aspire to compress into my work:  a spirit of celebration, expansion, optimism - inspiration against the dark – and in Stevens’ words, “a “compensation for what is lost.”

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."
