NEW YORK, NY.- Marianne Boesky Gallery announced representation of Michaela Yearwood-Dan in partnership with Tiwani Contemporary, London. Yearwood-Dan’s inaugural solo presentation with Marianne Boesky Gallery, Be Gentle With Me, is currently on view through October 30, 2021, in New York. To commemorate the artist’s representation by the gallery, new paintings will be presented in an upcoming pop up exhibition in Geneva and at Art Basel Miami Beach.

Born and based in London, Yearwood-Dan is distinguished for her painting and sculpture, which create immersive habitats that weave together a variety of themes based on her observations of society and self. In a recent interview on her work in Shondaland, Yearwood-Dan noted: “My hope is that people engage with the understanding that Black women are nuanced, and that’s also reflected in the work they make and wide variety of subject matters and aesthetics they explore.”

Yearwood-Dan uses paint, glitter, gold leaf, crystals, charcoal, and language to record her evolving cultural present. Through swirling strokes, vibrant palettes, and thick layers of paint, Yearwood-Dan cultivates lush scenes that borrow freely from pop culture, Blackness, feminism, botanical motifs, and personal visual narratives.

“Michaela Yearwood-Dan has an incredible ability for translating her personal experiences into communal narratives. Her works are a collage of historical and contemporary references that gradually reveal the multi-layered nature to her stunning paintings. We are thrilled to be co-representing Michaela with Tiwani Contemporary.” - Marianne Boesky, Founder of Marianne Boesky Gallery

“Michaela Yearwood-Dan's captivating explorations around subjectivity, experience and identity reveal a radical and fresh artistic voice who connects the personal to the political. Her work approaches some of the pressing issues of the age remarkably with extraordinary sensitivity and flair. We are delighted to be co-representing Michaela with Marianne Boesky Gallery," - Maria Varnava, Founder of Tiwani Contemporary.

Michaela Yearwood-Dan (b.1994; London) received her BA from the University of Brighton in 2016. Her work has most recently been presented in exhibitions at Marianne Boesky Gallery, New York; Arusha Gallery, Edinburgh, Scotland; TJ Boulting, London; Frestonian Gallery, London; Public Gallery, London; Guts Gallery, London; Tiwani Contemporary, London; Sarabande, The Lee Alexander McQueen Foundation, London. She is currently in residence at the Palazzo Monti in Brescia, Italy and will present new paintings in an upcoming institutional exhibition at New Art Exchange, Nottingham. Yearwood-Dan lives and works in London.
