Alexander Yulish: An Unquiet Mind March 8 - April 23, 2014.
Yulish, born in New York City in 1975, is the son of famed artist and sculptor Barbara Perlman whose continued influence on his work is considerable. Upon his graduation from Columbia Prep and Connecticut College, Yulish moved to Los Angeles where the brush became a revelation for the artist, and painting remains the favored form of self-expression for releasing the colors in his head.
McClemont writes, “Yulish's works are handsome psychological investigations that include memory and misery, and perhaps a bit of celebration of the moment. Like deKooning before him, Yulish presents a forceful distortion of figures that verges on abstraction. The hues are quickly laid down and the gestures subject to alteration upon alteration. His “people,” like deKooning's women, morph noisily before us. They wink and wince. Dance and cringe. The rhythm of a painting by Yulish is in constant flux. Ideas - in vibrant color - appear to be looped in his mind like maddening music not content to remain in the background. He captures life's feedback and gives it a face.”
Yulish's 12 works for An Unquiet Mind is an exploration of life's “endlessly neurotic battle” touching ever so slightly on autobiography. McClemont writes in the essay, “Angst as leitmotif is inescapable for Alexander Yulish. In this sense, he is a kind of more talented everyman forging on creatively in spite of the absurdity of it all. I disintegrate therefore I was. He shares with us the contents of his flickering inner life, translated into permanence by paint. A mined mind, if you will. His paintings remind us that life is a process of melting and muddling. “
Yulish was chosen by Los Angeles Confidential Magazine as one of 7 Los Angeles artists to watch. Alexander Yulish's work can be found in numerous prominent collections, most recently placed in the Annenberg's and the Eugenio Lopez collection.
