About

Sánchez's paintings are a search for re-enchantment, for a way to reach below the surface of things, to find that point of connection with life. The artist wants to engage the viewer in a sensory experience, one that is un-camera-like, un-computer-like. Her goal is to nudge the viewer into a deeper experience of the present, where the “circumference of self” is dissolved - to provide a moment of contemplation without literally telling a story.

Yolanda Sánchez was born in Havana, Cuba and emigrated to the United States in 1960. She has a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology. After teaching for many years, she returned to her first passion, art. She was awarded an MFA and a BFA from Yale University in painting.
