Yvette Molina's art examines the human drive towards discovery, meaning-making, and connection through the dual lens of science and mysticism. Drawing from influences spanning evolutionary biology, sacred symbols, and current events, her work questions how we define, sort, and value life. Yvette has exhibited across the US and internationally in galleries from Los Angeles and New York to Reykjavik and at venues such as the American Embassy in Montevideo, Uruguay, the Contemporary Museum, Honolulu, Hawai'i and the Legion of Honor and de Young Museums of California as an AIR awardee. In 2014 she undertook study of traditional egg tempera painting, gilding, and orthodox icon techniques from Byzantine to New Coptic, and Russian Prosopone. In this symposium she will discuss her solo exhibition Big Bang Votive currently on view in the gallery and teach an egg tempera workshop for art educators to use in their classrooms.
