Prints: Yolanda del Riego Heller and the Guggenheim
Review from the 1979 solo exhibition "Works on Paper" at the Anchorage Historical and Fine Arts Museum.
Two exhibits of original prints currently on view at the Anchorage Historical and Fine Arts Museum sit side by side much like great-grandfather and grandchild.
Yolanda del Riego Heller's exuberant "Works on Paper" seem to make joyful noises with colors, collage and embossments.
Vasily Kandinsky's experiments with non-objective forms and pure color shapes and the viscosity of multiple layered inks of Hayter's '"Witches Sabbath'" are all distinct elements in Yolanda's work, but in broader application, richer collaboration. And where El Lissitzky used a small amount of chine-colle - Chinese collage that is affixed between the paper and the ink - Yolanda's bursts with basketfuls of layered and fused materials.
