Lot Details

“Experiment for a disappearing tree” (2009) by Dustin Yellin is an excellent example of the artist’s fusion of successive layers of resin, resulting in a complex three-dimensional illusion. The complexity and perceived volume of the tree and its intricate leaves are deceptive, as upon closer inspection from the side, the image fractures and flattens. Interested in the natural world and unconventional materials, Yellin’s unique technique of layered drawing brings new meaning to collage work, and fascinates by way of a perfectly executed surreal work.
