Yvonne Love’s solo work explores issues of identity, memory and self and the conversations that take place between juxtaposed ideas and materials. Her process is deeply rooted in her observations of, and responses to, nature, whether it is the movement of a bird’s wings, ice formations on the surface of the water, or sedimentary deposits over time; each momentary, each changing.
Her most recent works take on social and political issues that are anthropogenic in nature, from water contamination to climate change, and include collaborative work with biologists, environmentalists, poets, musicians and dancers, primarily with her collaborative group The LR Collaborative.
Love and Russomagno, The LR Collaborative, are currently artists in residence at Smith College’s Arts Afield Program through Spring 2021. Ecotones, are a series of artworks that interpret and materialize climate narratives at MacLeish Field Station as specific examples of widespread ecological trends in a warming world.
Love received her MFA from the University of Pennsylvania and is represented by Brenda Taylor Gallery in Boston, Sidetracks Art Gallery in New Hope, and through an affiliation with LG Tripp Gallery in Philadelphia.
