Dustin Yellin was born in California in 1975, and raised in Colorado before establishing his art practice in Brooklyn, NY.
Often using a singular layered-glass process, Yellin’s work explores themes of nature at odds with human technological progress. Weaving together narratives of space travel, subterranean exploration, deluge, and inferno, Yellin’s work examines human consciousness careening into an uncertain global future.
Dustin Yellin is the founder and director of Pioneer Works in Red Hook, Brooklyn. Pioneer Works is a cultural center dedicated to experimentation, education and production across disciplines. Through a broad range of educational programs, performances, residencies and exhibitions, Pioneer Works transcends disciplinary boundaries to foster a community where alternative modes of thought are activated and supported.
