Catherine Yass overlays photograph negatives and positives to achieve the evocative color-saturated images in her prints and short films. Displaying the photographs in lightboxes adds to the luminous, otherworldly quality of her landscapes. Despite the intensity of color, Yass’s images exude a coldness that helps shape the artist’s commentaries on the vanity and folly behind certain man-made structures. To make the eerie film Lock (2006), for example, Yass shot footage from the vantage point of a Chinese tanker slowly making its way through a monumental gate on the Yangtze River.
