From the artist’s studio
Joanne Mattera, NYC, Author, Curator, Artist, wrote about Yntema\'s work: “In a minimalist manner, Yntema captures the recollection of light where hue is the reminder that opens an unseeable distance. She creates a physical container for the uncontainable.”

This work of pensive vertical abstraction, based in the Venetian tradition of “colore” (color as the basis of art) produces a Depiction of Atmosphere (the Unseen Air) as both subject and object. Here the balance of weights of blue create a palpable density and optical resonance capturing the diffused light and hidden modalities of nature The images Yntema creates are the result of accumulated, semi-translucent layers of color. The beeswax gives a dimensional quality to whatever surface she paints on. Despite the buildup of layers, the qualities of the wax also imbue an ephemeral lightness to the pictures, as light is allowed to pass through the top layer to illuminate the layers beneath. The process of creating these pictures is slow and deliberate, and that sense of the building up of time is important to the work. Yntema is inspired by the way light interacts with the natural landscape. She uses color and space as a way of examining light.
