There are no upcoming events
Born in Knoxville, Terrie Boruff Yeatts has been inspired by the singular moments captured in time and space. These moments of curiosity are depicted in her most recent paintings. The diversity of her oil paintings is shown in a range from portraiture to abstracts. She earned her BFA in 2006 from the University of Tennessee. A collection of her work can be seen throughout the US, Europe and Asia.
Terrie combines traditional and urban archetypes in her paintings to create a conceptual workspace merging dream and nature in a unified artistic sphere with many destinations. These destinations, or dimensional intersections, are starting points for stories that pose questions concerning the junction of dreams and reality. Look closely in her paintings and you will see the layered illustrative symbols drawn from life which she uses as a guide, through dreams and reality, driving her work towards a threshold or epiphany fraught with drama, anticipation and apprehension. She envisions her work as a symbolic narrative. The allegory is told through the systematic application of broad strokes creating a labyrinth of depth with colors that are both active and still. Her paintings portray progress from one stage of life to another.
