A churning fusion of vibrant hues and organic gestural marks, Yves brilliantly captures Joan Mitchell’s unbridled capacity to transcend the boundaries of time and space through dramatic expression. Mitchell’s late works attain a level of self-possession and unrestrained gesture, a profound synthesis of both her personal and artistic journey that reaches a triumphant culmination in Yves. Through painterly line, The present work conveys a personal landscape, alluding to memories, sensations, and feelings without describing or explicitly illustrating them.
