Yost's focus is in painting and drawing landscapes and room interiors. He paints observationally and en plein air, as well as creating synthetic environments from memory and appropriated imagery. The intent of the space represented in each piece is to act as a channel or gateway to a much more internal environment contained inside the viewer. Yost draws his influence from a range of old masters and contemporary artists. His upbringing and personal life greatly inform his imagery as well.
Jeff Yost, b. 1980, recieved a Bachelor's Degree in Painting & Drawing from the Columbus College of Art & Design in 2004. His work has been exhibited both locally and nationally, and belongs to public and private collections, such as the Cleveland Clinic
