Yeana Eugene-Carbon

“Art is in nature, and nature is art.”

Yaena Eugene-Carbon is a Dominican artist who goes by the name ‘Yae’. A self-taught jeweler

who went on to obtain a bachelor's degree in Sculpture from the Edna Manley College of the

Visual and Performing Arts in Jamaica. Considered to be one of Dominica’s more diverse

Emerging Artists, Yae also paints in mixed media and designs wearable Art. Her environment

within nature in the hills of Dominica, has and continues to provide endless inspiration which

drives her creative process. It is obvious in her work that she is drawn to the minutia in nature

that most overlook or miss entirely. In the true definition of abstraction, Yae mixes subject and

media to create almost mythical juxtapositions in a piece. Yae is also pulling from her lived

experiences. Using her body as a mold, her breasts, her belly, her face become part of her

pieces, conveying quite a visceral tone that

instigates dialogue. She will incorporate paper mâché, bandages, cloth, discarded objects and

jewels into her relief sculptures that hang off walls invitingly. Yae is one of Dominica’s leading

emerging visual artists and is represented by Vetivert Contemporary, Fine Art Gallery of

Dominica, in Roseau.
