Will Yackulic

IBM Selectric typewriter ball? Geodesic sphere? Disco mirror? All of these objects are evoked by Yackulic's small works, which feature painted orbs on grounds of typewritten characters. In some areas, the letters form dense shadows or undulating waves; occasional diamonds and squares coalesce from typed phrases, recalling concrete poetry and typewriter art. Titles such as The Uncanny Scent of Our Beginnings, or End throw narrative grit between the fluctuations of abstraction and schemata.
