Eric Yahnker employs elaborate metaphors and cultural commentaries in his monumental, irreverent charcoal and colored pencil drawings. Immediately appealing on their surfaces, Yahnker’s drawings convey deeper meanings to viewers who patiently engage with them. The artist begins his drawings as a series of words in a sketchbook, collaging ideas as much as images. The results are aggregations of witty, politically charged imagery.
