DESCRIPTION

Bert Green Fine Art is pleased to present two solos shows by West Coast artists.

Sandra Yagi lives and works in San Francisco, CA. This is her fifth solo show with the gallery. Yagi is primarily interested in the intersection between science and art, using anatomy, genetic manipulation, evolution, and medical oddities as tools in the creation of intricate, small and medium scale paintings in traditional styles. These works depict strange worlds where skeletons of conjoined twins interplay with circus animals, flayed simians invade the historical canons of Western art, and small, delicate, genetically hybrid creatures satisfy unusual curiosities and symbolize moral conundrums.
