Carlyn Yandle


Carlyn Yandle's work as an emerging artist draws on 17 years as an award-winning reporter, editor and columnist for various daily and weekly Canadian newspapers, a career that began while living and working as a magazine feature writer in Kyoto, Japan. Her interest in news reporting shifted to newspaper design as the print media industry moved to an ever-increasing focus on graphics. She eventually turned all her attention to earning her Bachelors of Fine Arts degree, with an emphasis on painting and sculpture, at Emily Carr University of Art + Design. She lives in her hometown of Vancouver, B.C. 

Carlyn states, "my work explores the spaces between pattern and chaos, attraction and repulsion, discord and harmony, the superficial and the profound, the masculine and feminine.

The Pop-Up painting series is my latest exploration: an unfocused, restless and ubiquitous crowded visual field created through a laborious, low-tech, meditative process".
