About Dustin Yellin

Dustin Yellin is as known for his image-rich sculptures as he is for his entrepreneurship, reflected in his contemporary art hub, Pioneer Works, Brooklyn, his magazine of artist interviews, Intercourse, and his work in his own studio and running a (now closed) commercial gallery. For Yellin, these projects are interconnected, as his description of Pioneer Works exemplifies: “For me, it's a sculpture. […] It's just like you're working in layers you're seeing through, whether it's layers of glass or layers of people, and eventually all those layers are in harmony and in unison to sort of make something like this possible.” Layers define Yellin’s practice. His sculptures—from large- to small-scale—are composed of thickly layered glass panels, painted or collaged with a riot of images that coalesce into shape-shifting narrative scenes, human figures, or isolated natural forms.
