Remembering Something I Never Knew

Untitled (9), 2023, ink, oil pastel and pencil on paper, 47x39 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.
