Yvonne Jacquette depicts our urban world from a vantage point high above us. From her perch, she brings order and context to the crazy world we have made. Neon signs, strings of cars on dark highways, bright lit windows viewed from the top of a skyscraper or from an airplane window become the dashes of color Jacquette uses to describe light and space in her paintings and prints.
Yvonne Jacquette’s newest print is “Hudson Reflections”. In “Hudson Reflections” she looks west across the Hudson River and captures the play of light and reflections of lights from a myriad of sources piled upon the distant shoreline. The density and depth of color of the night river serve to make the lights brighter and more luminous and the river more mysterious.
Yvonne Jacquette received the Painters Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters in 1990. She is represented in many public collections including The Metropolitan Museum, The Museum of Modern Art, Philadelphia Museum of Art, Staatliche Museum, Berlin, and The Whitney Museum of American Art.
