The works of Yolanda Crosse focus on rural scenes and subjects, presenting them in a way that enhances the essential solitude of the countryman. She manages to transform reality in her own way, creating an evocative impression of sensitive experiences that gives these oil paintings an energy of impressive dimensions. This is an artist who invites us to live the silences, the whispers, perfumes and colors, both seen and unseen, that give life to the scenes she represents. The result is a powerful feeling of the emotional currents and consequences attached to what we see. Yolanda Crosse says that “today, I understand that the essence of man's thoughts is universal,” and in her work we can perceive her attempt to return to “the roots” and the “essence of humanity.” Nothing remains motionless within her perceptive, immersive dominion, and that, combined with a precise sense of balance, allows the impact to penetrate very deeply into the sensibilities of the viewer.
Yolanda Crosse was born in Montevideo, and still lives and works there.
