"Nothing Happens But A Lot Goes On": The Lighter Side Of Dustin Yellin

When he isn't coating thin layers of resin with drawings of sea anemones at his Red Hook studio, Dustin Yellin explores the finer, more 'exclusive' attractions of New York City: Commandeering the Forbes yacht, scaling the nature observatory at Central Park, and suggesting emotionally-depleted Fitzgerald to the night shift at Chelsea Piers:

The Crack-Up (part 1)


The Crack-Up (part 2)


He also has a show going on at Robert Miller Gallery(524 West 26th Street). Dustin Yellin: Suspended Animations runs through July, 2007, and is accompanied by an illustrated catalogue with an essay by Marina van Zuylen, Professor of French and Comparative Literature at Bard College. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 10:00 am to 6:00 pm.



"For his second exhibition with the Gallery, Yellin presents large scale, cast resin sculptures. Some tower over eight feet in height. His works, reminiscent of insects and plants captured in amber, are a fusion of sculpture and drawing. The illusion of encapsulated specimens in suspension is achieved by layering drawings in acrylic or India ink on resin. Yellin builds his drawings, sometimes as many as two hundred, one on top of the next in precise orientations. The overlap and transparency of each layer result in an astounding effect of three-dimensionality. When viewed in the round, a new set of ideas surfaces. Seen from the side, the images mimic the optical trickery of holograms, disappearing and re-appearing at once. As portions of the image fall in and out of focus, the underlying, individual layers re-assert themselves and reinforce the mutually supportive relationship between drawing and sculpture and the deliberate construction of illusion. As scientists meticulously collect and study organisms of this world, Yellin has fastidiously created his own taxonomy of species that resemble organic structures; vines, skeletons, sea anemones, in another. Yellin has quickly mastered both his craft and vision and expanded on his ideas not only in scale but in concept. Set before us, in the most unnerving way, are beautifully crafted, suspended animations of the unknown yet familiar." - Artnet.com
