ABOUT Yael Roberts is a mixed media artist who body-prints from found glass and wood to create large-scale installations. Using found objects, she carves into their surface, drawing from memory, dream, and reality to alter the objects and prepare them for printing. She then integrates drawing into the printing process itself, both with her body as well as with writing implements and objects on the back of the paper. The imagery and drawing is reflective of the natural world, extinction, mythic place, and contemporary capitalistic patterns of living.  As the prints build up in the studio over the course of months or years, they are variably editioned, replicated, collaged, and messed with, to create wall and space-based work which the viewer wanders through. The making of the work is performative, as well as collaborative, co-created from conversations with people and inspired by their movements and intuition. The prints are shown alongside or inspired by photographs and films collected from the artist’s day-to-day life, and all of the work emerges from research, reading, sketching, and writing.
