Lot description
"Experiment for a disappearing tree" (2009), by Brooklyn-based Dustin Yellin (American, b. 1975), is an excellent example of the aritist's fusion of successive layers of transparent resin –each individually embellished with acrylic– to create complex three-dimensional volume. In this work, the many painstakingly articulated layers combine to create the image of a pine tree. The complexity and perceived volume of the tree and its intricate leaves fool the mind into thinking there is a real object cast within the resin, however upon close inspection from the side, the image fractures and flattens. Yellin's unique technique of layered drawing brings new meaning to the collage genre, and fascinates by way of a perfectly executed, surreal illusion.

Artwork measures 36 x 12 x 12 inches and weighs approximately 100 lbs. Artwork comes with artist's solid wood pedestal.
