Rooted in identity and personal history, Yoeli’s works function as aesthetic monuments, paying homage to the space and time held by the artist; her place in the socio-political world.
Thematically, Yoeli’s series remain united through memory, while the visual concept of each series varies drastically. Her works range from delicately arranged wreaths of flora to brutalist-like slabs of concrete. The materials used by the artist deliberately challenge our unconscious gendering of the very elements she employs.
The Artist’s works explore past and present, placing the individual at the epicenter of these forces. Despite finding inspiration from her own history, Yoeli’s pieces remain universal.
