Paul Yore’s intensely layered, textile forms comprise an assemblage of text and imagery that aim to mirror and critique society and lived experience. The artist’s painstakingly manual production techniques via quilting, appliqué, needlepoint and embroidery, express a form of ambiguous storytelling. Through these various approaches, Yore invites the viewer to piece together narratives within his subversive and flamboyant patchwork creations.

Beyond the glittering surfaces and wild palette, Yore’s motivation for making this new series of work for his second solo exhibition at Michael Reid Berlin, Patriot is, as the artist explains, to “deal broadly with the slipperiness of language, the limitations imposed by borders and boundaries, the weight of competing historical narratives and the prevailing cultural climate that feels at once foreboding and yet full of potentiality”.

This exhibition is curated by Rachael Vance.
