"Working this way is consistent with my interest in motion and transitory forms, as each brush mark holds the possibility of altering the painting entirely." -Sydney Yeager Sydney Yeager’s conceptual concern on fragmentation has inspired her work. The idea of an independent part colliding into a whole and then collapsing back into a singular unit has interested Yeager for years. For Yeager this idea plays of a sense of continuity that is constantly threatened with disintegration.
Driven by sensuous color and form, the fragmentation in her work implies a whole, but a mysterious whole that can only be imagined. There is an implied presence, but an absence as well within a continuous motion. Her perpetual enquiry of whether fragments are nostalgic reminders of the past or the beginnings of a new form has interested Yeager as she continues to document her exploration of fragments.
