The shape of my memory seems to transmute so fluidly over the course of time that I can never be sure whether what I remember is objective truth or subjective longing. "Meet Me at the Water" is a part of a drawing series that conveys an objective longing for a specific person who, after twenty-five years together, no longer lives in the same city as me. I am standing in a space we both know, looking out to the sea, dreaming of a time when we will be in the same place again.
This quiet, seaside scene is part of a drawing series titled Stairs Go There. The series—a nod to Yen’s background in architecture—surveys the places that stairs take us and the porosity of physical space. With solid, muted tones and simplistic shapes, this digital drawing—a new medium for Yen—places us mid-memory of a physical place. We are everywhere at once. We are inside looking out the windows toward the ocean. We are outside the pale dune fence looking in. And bisected prominently by the staircase, we are neither up nor down.
