On View

Introducing Kennedy Yanko’s solo show with Denny Dimin Gallery, February 1 - March 10.

“Highly Worked”


"Painting." 34 x 33.5 x 22 in. Copper, paint. 2019.


“Choosing copper as her primary medium for this collection, Yanko refers to the history of painting on copper, which was widespread in northern and southern Europe in the 17th and 18th centuries, when it was deployed as both a support and a luminous background capable of imparting jewel-like surfaces. Incorporating her “skins” as articulate strokes and limiting their palette to the colors of oxidation (greens, blues, reds, oranges), Yanko directly acknowledges artists’ methodologies from the Renaissance and the use of copper to enhance the depth and potential of color laid upon it.”
