Paul Yore, YOUR CAPITAL IS AT RISK, Neon Parc Brunswick, 27 October – 15 December 2018.

A solo exhibition by Paul Yore YOUR CAPITAL IS AT RISK is now open at Neon Parc, Brunswick. Yore’s large-scale tapestries are presented alongside works on paper and new soft sculptures.

Yore’s practice manifests a cultural environment replete with signs of social decay, carnivalesque convulsions and consumer excess. Textile as a medium is used for practical and conceptual means: for its finesse and subverting the craft as an historical form. His use of collage interrupts dominant narratives and creates frictions of significance between repurposed imagery, which include Catholicism, suburban vernacular, political figures, art historical genres, pornography, and cartoons.

For more information on the exhibition visit Neon Parc’s website.
