“Cape Cod is the bared and bended arm of Massachusetts. . .” – – from “Cape Cod: The Shipwreck” (1865) by Henry David Thoreau.

“Bared & Bended” is a series of abstract landscaped chronicling the artist’s first winter in Provincetown, Massachusetts. While Yamrus has frequented Cape Cod for over two decades, it was not until 2003 that he experienced the region’s harsher months. Seeking space from a spiraling personal relationship and solitude for artistic inspiration, Yamrus headed to Provincetown, the place he considers his true home. As part of his daily routine, Yamrus wandered through the frozen landscapes of the Cape. During these walks, he found his psychological space mirrored in the snow, fog, mist, and rain, and with these elements he created the images included in this bosy of work.
