New Work Added to Live ARC Salon

April 7, 2017

We are pleased to announce that [DefaultValue(null)] by Stephen Yavorski has been added to the 12th International ARC Salon Exhibition
"When I designed [DefaultValue(null)], I wanted to explore emotion, specifically sadness and depression. These are things that we all feel, but for the most part, try to bury and hide from. There's something interesting that happens when a person is going through depression. They feel alone and helpless, like no one has ever felt the way they're feeling and knows how to sympathize. When someone says to me about this drawing, 'That’s depressing.' or 'Are you OK?', I take it as a compliment and know I've done my job. I’m connecting to something within them that they've either felt or currently feel, knowingly or not. It feels good. Not because I'm making people feel sad, but because I’m helping them, as well as myself, understand that we are not alone with these feelings. These emotions are what make us human. There are more people in our lives than we think that know what sadness is and can truly be there for us when we need them." - Stephen Yavorski
