Artist Bio

Yvonne Martinez

Yvonne Martinez is a Chicago based fiber artist. She is interested in the types of images we collect and keep in our computer, and looks to examine what it means to publicly immortalize our digital debris. Knitting is used as a means to document the collaboration between the tangible and the ephemeral. A recent grad of the School of the Art Institute’s Fiber & Material Studies department, Martinez has shown work at Currents New Media, form & concept, San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles, SITE Galleries, and ARC Gallery.
