Debuting at the Little House in Los Angeles, Dries Van Noten announces Brooklyn-based artist Dustin Yellin’s presentation Ruins of the Painted Day taking residency at the brand’s flagship store from now until April 6th. Ruins of the Painted Day will feature a selection of Yellin’s new work, where the artist propels forward the threshold of his form with a deeper look into his chosen materials.

Each piece is reminiscent of a portal where boundaries meet between past, present and future––blurring the lines between the layers of each, inviting viewers to interpret the art. The sculptures presented are works of “frozen cinema.” Embedding tiny images snipped from old magazines, art history books, dictionaries and discovered notebooks into sheets of laminated glass. His work forms an archive of both gestures and images. 

Yellin is the founder and director of Pioneer Works, a cultural center that prides itself on community through arts and sciences. Yellin’s art has been the subject of solo exhibitions over his 20-year career in notable locations such as: New York City, Seoul, and Washington D.C. 

Dries Van Noten’s purpose of their flagship store extends beyond the typical retail experience, hosting exhibitions by artists, designers and craftspeople. The Little House features the works of others exclusively. Yellin shares, “Memories stack up like sediment on my synapses. I bleed ideas that became maps of what I’m trying to understand, that then turn into the flesh of my practice.”
