Amy Yoes: Folding #27

Amy Yoes: Folding #27


Paint and ink on canvas. Dimensions variable.

The "Foldings" are two-sided paintings that can be displayed in any number of ways. They can be pinned to the wall or placed on the floor. The act of folding creates infinite variety and readings.

Amy Yoes works in a multi-faceted way, alternately employing installation, photography, video, painting, and sculpture. An interest in decorative language and architectural space permeates all of her work. She responds to formal topologies of ornament and style that have reverberated through time, informing our mutually constructed visual and cultural memory.

Yoes teaches each Fall for the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Since 2014 she has co-taught a winter study trip for SAIC in Siena, Italy, focusing on the relationships between geology, local materials, and the history of cultural production of the city.
