Darius Yektai
Edge of Pond

2020

$7,700

About

"Edge of Pond" is a painting on linen, created with layers of oil paint and resin. Swaths of oil paint are applied directly to the linen. Then, the canvas is laid flat, and Yektai pours a liquid resin on top of the painted canvas. Once this layer is smooth, even, and hardened, Yektai places forms on top of the resin layer, in oil paint. Some forms are abstract, and some forms are naturalized, meant to portray lilypads on a pond, or branches of a willow tree hanging down. This is a prime example of Yektai's passion for art history meeting his passion for materials. Darius Yektai was born in Southampton NY, in 1973. He lives and works out of his home and studio in Sag Harbor. He grew up in a cultural home of art and artists, with his Greek-American Mother, and his Father, Manoucher Yektai, an Iranian who emigrated to the US after the Second World War, was a prominent Hamptons AbEx painter. Darius has picked up some traits from his father but pushes even further into what is now completely his-own. Darius' most recent body of work is bright, colorful, with oil and acrylic paints laid on thick. He's creating sculptural paintings that can't be read from left to right, they need to be examined from surface to base, from section to section, and then overall as an encompassing whole.
