Catalogue Note

"Along with his thick swirls of quasi-sculptural impasto emphasizing the paint as paint and the surface as surface, Yektai has persisted in the maintenance of a residual illusory depth that refers to the spaces of everyday life. The inner tension in his work can be seen as an interplay between space within the painting and the presence of the paint as itself."
