DC Moore Gallery is honored to present two concurrent exhibitions, Yvonne Jacquette: Looking Up/Down/Inside/Out and Yvonne Jacquette: Recent Views, Maine & New York, following the recent passing of Yvonne Jacquette on April 23, 2023. The long-planned exhibitions, organized in collaboration with the artist and her son Tom Burckhardt, will open as scheduled at DC Moore Gallery on May 4, 2023, with the support of her family as a tribute to her life and work.
Yvonne Jacquette: Recent Views, Maine & New York presents a group of new paintings completed in 2022. Throughout her career, New York City and Maine served as continual sources of inspiration for the artist. These recent works depict intimate views from her New York City studio and her backyard in Maine, returning to the immediacy of her early works. She maintained her fascination with precise architectural detail, while embracing rhythmic brushwork and disjointed views of the landscape. Putting these new paintings in conversation with her historic works illuminates Jacquette’s singular point of view, capturing her immediate surroundings as moments paused in time.
