Dustin Yellin is a layerist. His mediums and techniques vary but inevitably result in layers and layers of intricate chaos. Intractable control. Images composed of images, composed of imagery. Layers of life and death tell elaborate stories, petrified in time, on wood, canvas, or between layers of glass. Unfathomable amounts of time and effort to tell epic sagas in the span of inches. Like life, layers. This piece, Map for Active Margin, has layers to tell.
