I first encountered Becky Yazdan’s seductive paintings at the 2011 NurtureArt benefit, and this month she has a compelling show at Giampietro Gallery in New Haven. A graduate of the New York Studio School, Yazdan works in an intimate scale, deftly mining daily incident and objects for content and meaning. Bill Jensen, Graham Nickson (both of whom she studied with at NYSS) and (of course) Thomas Nozkowski are among her painting heroes. Here are some images of her work.
“Becky Yazdan and Christopher Joy,” Fred Giampietro, New Haven, CT. Through March 29, 2013.
Note: Look for a post on painter Christopher Joy’s new sculpture tomorrow.
