"I try to emulate memories with my paintings, attempting to create a kind of false family photo."
Yves is a self taught artist from Richmond, VA. They focus on familial, romantic and platonic relationships, and how those complex concepts shape our own perceptions of self. With a heavy emphasis on perception, they have an obsession with looking at ourselves through someone else’s eyes.
Yves primarily works on textiles as their main material source. The relationship between their subjects and cloth like materials strengthens the context of their works.
