Yarwood, Walter (Canadian, 1917–1996)
Originally a painter, Yarwood abandoned the medium for sculpture after the demise of Painters Eleven, of which he was a member. He constructed his works from such materials as cast aluminum, bronze, wood, and found objects. His public commissions can be found in Winnipeg, Toronto, and Montreal.
Youngerman, Jack (American, b. 1926)
Part of a generation of American Abstract Expressionist artists including Ellsworth Kelley, Robert Motherwell, and Agnes Martin, Jack Youngerman lived and worked in Paris from 1947 to 1956, where he developed an interest in organic forms and hard-edged abstraction. After returning to the United States he settled in New York City, where he was included in Dorothy Miller’s seminal exhibition 16 Americans at the Museum of Modern Art in 1959. Working in colour, then in black and white, then in colour again, in the 1970s Youngerman expanded his practice to include abstract sculpture in cast fiberglass followed by steel and aluminum, as well as wood cut-outs.
