Cathy Yantsis is an artist from Hamilton, Ontario who is known for her work in abstracting text and language and at times connecting with Historical Documents and correspondence.
Finding inspiration in the symbols & characters embedded in these archives - Cathy will dissect and transpose and reduce them to pure abstraction – rendering them completely foreign. This process culls Yantsis to further examine her identity, heritage and the journey of her people more scrupulously while fuelling her fascination of migration.
Cathy’s work is represented in private and public collections across Canada.
