The canvases of Becky Yazdan conjure the interior world of personal memories, which she evokes without illustrating specific details. The Brooklyn-based artist creates layered compositions based subject matter from her daily life: books, TV shows, dreams, and past experiences. She works by combining color, form, and pattern, both intuitively and intentionally, digging up sensations as intangible as the fist time she ever told a lie or the specific color of a beloved childhood bathing suit. “The paintings are like dreams,” Yazdan has said of her work. “The events of the day [are] reorganized and combined with other events and memories until a new, often surprising, reality has taken shape.”
