YOLANDA SANCHEZ: Too Much of a Good Thing is Wonderful

23 August - 15 September 2013

Kathryn Markel Fine Arts is pleased to announce the exhibition, Yolanda Sanchez: Too Much of a Good Thing is Wonderful at the Bridgehampton Gallery.


This is Sanchez's third solo exhibition with Kathryn Markel Fine Arts. A great deal of Sanchez's work draws from and refers to nature, but is not, however, directly representative of it. She does not attempt to recreate the world around us, but utilizes painting as a means to become more finely tuned to it. The resultant work is wildly expressive, creating an experience unique to each individual viewer, a magical experience often taken for granted in our day to day lives, but emphasized through Sanchez's masterful manipulation of paint and canvas.


Yolanda Sanchez was born in Havana, Cuba and immigrated to the United States in 1960. She obtained a PhD in Clinical Psychology in 1979. Yolanda is a Fulbright scholar. Later she acquired her BFA and subsequently, an MFA from Yale University, where she studied with British abstract expressionist John Walker. She has exhibited extensively throughout the United States and her work is included in many public and private collections. Currently, Sanchez lives and works in Miami Beach, Florida.
