Yackulic uses a typewriter, watercolor, India ink, and gouache to render otherworldly landscapes occasioned by spheroid forms which he terms "outposts". They resemble untethered geodesic domes, with subtle color fluctuations among their facets. Yackulic’s typewriter marks proliferate outward from his outposts like so many oscillating wavelengths, drawing forth allusions to both natural and engineered activity. At other times, the mysterious spheres hover above or below cryptic, typewritten phrases. The tactile and the imagined intersect, acknowledging the emotional and spatial tensions of the artistic process.
