Thea Yabut


September 2023


The inscribed surfaces of Thea Yabut’s work brings identity to an intimate process of materiality, pattern, and improvisation. Her low-relief sculptures embody the physical act of their construction while the repeating textures demonstrate a meditative and durational activity. Thea holds a sustained interest in highlighting the mutability of her material and its potential to encapsulate time. Embedded in the surface of her works are notations of how it transformed from a wet malleable paper clay into a fossilized record of touch.
