Biography from the Archives of askART

These Notes represent the beginning of a possible future biography for this artist. Please click here if you wish to help in its development.

A sculptor working primarily in stainless and Cor-ten steel, Karen Yank creates geometric abstract pieces, many of them suggesting images of mountains, water, and lava.

She is the daughter of sculptor Paul Yank, who introduced her to Alexander Calder when she was seven years old, and she has held a life-long admiration for his work. Another mentor is Agnes Martin, New Mexico minimalist artist whom Yank studied with at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in Maine in 1987.
