Gouache

“I work in hard-edge, two dimensional, often deceivingly direct and simple forms, which render, I feel, and essentially sculptural sense of mass.” – Jan Yoors.

Throughout Yoors’s career he produced gouache paintings encompassing biblical and mythical scenes, animals, and abstractions. Most of these works are no larger than a small sheet of writing paper, however he also produced larger compositions for tapestries which were at full scale, the largest being 12’ x 24’. In all of these works, figures, animals, and abstracts feature the same bold colors and lines that course through Yoors’s work in other media.
