b. 1959, USA
Amy Yoes was born in 1959 and grew up in Houston, Texas. From 1979 to 1984 she attended the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where she graduated as a Bachelor of Fine Arts. She has lived in Chicago, San Francisco and, since 1998, New York. She works in a multifaceted way, alternately employing installation, photography, video, painting, and sculpture, including public sculpture. An interest in decorative language and architectural space permeates all of her work, as seen in some of her site-specific pieces. Since the mid-1980s, her work has been seen in many solo and group exhibitions both in the United States and in Europe, Portugal included.
