Remembering Something I Never Knew

Yael Yudkovik, Remembering Something I Never Knew, Untitled (6), 2022, oil pastel, ink, pen, pencil, black paper on paper, 39x47 cm (framed)

Yudkovik’s drawings hold hints and outlines contexts, above and under the ground. Yudkovik’s art is mostly nourished by biographical materials, evolving through a continuing dialog with death, via the awareness of finality on the one hand, and the effort to put it off on the other.

The drawings are in a state of preparation for parting, perhaps looking back on a parting, and at the same time protesting it.
In Yael’s creative experience, every drawing is a memorial, each text an epitaph.

Yudkovik’s way of drawing is confrontational. She strongly scraps the oil-sticks colored areas with her fingernails thereby scratching it, scratching the paper with pencils, engraving into it.

The drawings aren’t about vision but about not-seeing.
Yudkovik’s drawings evolve layer by layer, through erasures and concealments. Drawing as a consciousness. Each layer erases the previous one as if burying it, plastering it over.
It’s a language or non-language of post-trauma. The things are under.
