Flaring mixed-media paintings of dreamy aquatic ecosystems by Yellena James

Yellena James, a Portland-based artist, has a unique talent for bringing the beauty of aquatic ecosystems to life through her vibrant mixed-media paintings. Her work is a captivating blend of color and form, creating dreamlike scenes that invite viewers to explore imaginary underwater worlds. James’ technique involves a harmonious combination of acrylics, gouache, and various inks, which she skillfully layers to achieve a sense of depth and movement.

The result is a visual feast of amorphous shapes that seem to float effortlessly across the canvas, reminiscent of the weightlessness found beneath the ocean’s surface. Her series, such as “Weightless” and “Antidote”, not only showcase her artistic prowess but also reflect her philosophical approach to art-making. She describes her process as one of being in the moment, allowing the artwork to reveal itself organically. This intuitive method results in pieces that are both intricate and spontaneous, offering a glimpse into the artist’s imaginative vision of nature’s intricate tapestries.
