ClampArt is pleased to announce the opening of “The Space Between,” Marc Yankus’ fourth exhibition of photographs at the gallery.

In his newest body of work, Yankus turns away from the soft focus which characterized much of his earlier imagery. In these photographs of the city, there is a very precise, almost hyper-real quality. The exactitude of the lines and the enormity of detail (down to the definition of individual bricks in the façade of a thirty-story building) imbue the photographs with the meticulousness of architectural renderings. However, Yankus plays off of the rigidity with a soft, subdued palette and a texture in the images which curiously seems to speak of history, memories, and the past.

The artist considers the photographs obscure and surrealistic portraits of New York City buildings. He writes, “In my new work, I have attempted to ‘rebuild’ New York through my own, imagined vision, in which the city’s historical buildings, so often taken for granted, exist as living presences.”

Marc Yankus’ fine art and publishing experience span a period of more than thirty years. Yankus’ work has been included in exhibitions at The Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn, New York; the George Eastman House, Rochester, New York; the South Street Seaport Museum, New York City; and the Library of Congress, Washington, DC. His artwork has graced the covers of books by Salman Rushdie, Philip Roth, and Alan Hollinghurst, among many others. His images have also been used for theatrical posters for such acclaimed Broadway shows as Jane Eyre; August Wilson’s Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom; and John Patrick Shanley’s Pulitzer Prize winning play, Doubt. Yankus’ work is represented in the permanent collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; the New-York Historical Society, New York City; and the Library of Congress, Prints and Photographs Division, Washington, D.C.
