Denis a. Yanashot

Biography

Yanashot employs different combinations of materials and methods in his sculpture.  He is a stone carver inspired by plant, human and animal forms.

            He also creates mixed media assemblages of sculpture in the round, relief and mosaic forms.  He uses a variety of materials in his mixed media work including found objects, scrap metal, stone, bone, antiques, river detritus and defunct anthracite industry coal and its byproducts.

            Yanashot finds it interesting to use these varied materials and sometimes obsolete objects for creating sculpture.  His intent is to use these varied materials in combination to give them a new life or reincarnation as an art form. 

            Yanashot also creates bodies of work or series that reflect a theme or particular subject matter.  These series can be based on animals, people or a subject such as the defunct anthracite industry of Northeastern Pennsylvania.
