The translucent finished shapes hold the imagery in an eerie virtual space. The clear layers that separate the pigment offer shadows and a changing form as the viewer navigates to different angles.
Yellin makes use of CAT scans and MRI’s as reference for many of these works. The layered resin pieces are a fusion of painting and sculptural form. The ink and or acrylic paint is often set into the resin as panes built up to demonstrate a three dimensional topography.
A collision of content parallels the paradox of dimension in these sculptures. Dustin Yellin is clearly delighted with the art that depicts science. The transformation from factual rendering to casual characters is something to savor.
