Deborah Yasinsky

Deborah Yasinsky is a Bronx based artist. Her work explores issues of childhood, vulnerability, memory, and duality of emotions in parenting. Exploring the romanticized view of motherhood and childhood, that often conceals reality. She depicts the fragility of childhood, through humorous often absurd manifestations of objects representative of childhood. Her work challenges the patriarchal view of women artists who depict their own children or explore issues of motherhood as cliché. The figure is often set in nature amidst flora and fauna, reminiscent of her own childhood exploring Inwood, NYC, it's parks, the Hudson River and public spaces of the region. Inspired by medieval manuscripts, and Victorian motifs and symbolism. Deborah incorporates painting, drawing, assemblage, and animation into her practice.
