“Over the years my work has evolved to combine multiple image photography with drawing and painting, using a variety of digital editing and physical montage techniques,” Yurchuk says. “This includes adjusting inkjet images by applying acrylics, watercolors, pastels, markers, colored pencils together with selected collage materials to achieve a desired effect.”
“I have a special interest in characterizing buildings, which reflects my background in architecture and urban design,” he says. “Works in the show include reexamined images of distinctive edifices, abstractions of topographic components, and some observations of the natural environment in the Narrowsburg area, where I have spent more than 40 summers.”
