Will Yackulic


Opening next week at the Jeff Bailey Gallery in New York City will be “Focused Aggregate Intensity,” an exhibition of new drawings and paintings by NYC-based artist Will Yackulic. This will be the artist’s first solo exhibition in NYC, following successful shows at Gregory Lind Gallery and the Adobe Backroom Gallery, both in San Francisco. Yackulic has developed a geometric vocabulary that is built with a typewriter, gouache, watercolor and India ink, causing the visual plane to vibrate through optically intense patterning. The dominant spheres in the work pulsate through thousands of marks allowing the two-dimensional space to operate as a three-dimensional form. Often the work resonates as snow on an old TV screen or as planets floating in an indeterminate galaxy of information. The artist has participated in several U.S. and international group exhibitions including works at fa projects in London and Zentral Buro in Berlin, and received a BFA in Painting from the State University of New York at Purchase. Yackulic’s works have been featured in both Modern Painters and Artforum Magazines.
