Process. A series of actions, changes or functions.
The unusual materials employed by Yvonne Love, such as modeling paste and glue, fluctuate between drawing space and holding form. These spaces and forms address experience and memory, positive and negative and the ambiguity of boundaries, which contain and protect or divide and limit.
Her current series of works delve into quiet memory and employ a play on repetition that offers both a meditative state as well as eliciting a tone that is simultaneously of the body and the ocean. In both the making and in experiencing, the pieces require slowness.
Born in Union, NJ in 1968, Yvonne Love received her BDAE in art education from the University of Florida in 1990 and her MFA in sculpture from the University of Pennsylvania in 1994. She is an associate professor and program chair at Penn State Abington College.
Yvonne’s work has most recently been exhibited at the List Gallery at Brown University, Brenda Taylor Gallery in Boston, LG Tripp Gallery in Philadelphia, Taller Graphica Experimental in Havana, Cuba and The Woodmere Art Museum in Philadelphia. She is represented by Brenda Taylor Gallery in Boston, and Sidetracks Gallery in New Hope, Pennsylvania. Additionally she works collaboratively with Gabrielle Russomagno (thelrcollaborative), their art making materializes the complexity of personal and societal narratives, especially climate change. They have an upcoming solo exhibition at the Ruffin Gallery at the University of Virginia Fall of 2019.
