"When humanity, technology and the natural world convene", Yuster's landscapes embrace the vortex. Her particular ability to convey atmosphere, air and subtle light, results in paintings that nail a moment, flash a glimpse or hint at a mystery.
Sprawling, lush and sentimental treatment is lavished on both likely and unlikely subjects, while others are spare, offhand remarks - and there's an occasional elbow jab of dry humor. A viewer will likely connect somewhere along this spectrum of compelling images.”
