Best known for his unique artistic practice that is part drawing, part sculpture, Dustin Yellin renders images on multiple sheets of resin or glass using ink, acrylic, and collage. He then layers these slides one onto the other to create an illusion of three-dimensional objects or landscapes trapped in space. Though the "objects" seem tangible, the image disappears or distorts depending on the viewer's position, creating an ephemeral, otherworldly effect.

Yellin is currently completing a 24,000-pound triptych inspired by Bosch's Garden of Earthly Delights. The triptych depicts a narrative of life and the afterlife populated by tiny mythological subjects and overpowering divinities. Each 30 inch-thick panel has two faces, a formal schism that is mimicked conceptually: one side of the work displays a representational world while the other is constituted by a white mesh representing the loose underpinnings of reality. These two realms also suggest the dialectical relationship between reality and art, the latter holding up a distorted, though prescient, mirror to the former.
