Amy Yoes

Biography

works in a multi-faceted way, alternately employing painting, photography, installation, video, and sculpture. An interest in decorative language and architectural space permeates all of her work. She responds to the formal topologies of ornament and style that have reverberated through time, informing our mutually constructed visual and cultural memory. Adding to  this multileveled aesthetic unfolding, Yoes’ work plays in the realm of human connectedness. She grew up in Houston and in Chicago, where she attended the School of the Art institute of Chicago. She lives and works in New York City. She is currently working with fellow artist Mark Dion on Above/Below Ground, a collaborative project for the Siena Art Institute in Italy.
