Jason Yates

The Existential Sadness, 2017
3 x 3 x 5 feet

LA-based artist Jason Yates’ central approach is the subversion and denaturing of the American readymade. The artist exhumes the nation’s collective unconscious by way of its neglected keepsakes. Through radical chromatic contextual recontextualization, Yates pursues an index of longing and an anthology of forgetting.
