Robert Yoder’s recent work features mysterious typographic forms drawn and painted primarily on tee-shirts or textiles which have been torn or ripped, then thickly covered in layers of oil paint. These works hint at clothing, perhaps even athletic uniforms, while not quite revealing their former selves. “I grew up in the south and ‘came of age’ during the early 1980’s in a very conservative area. Signs and symbols, from clothing, music, etc., took on another layer of meaning for me.”

Robert’s work is in many collections including Amgen Corporation, Boeing Corporation, The City of Seattle Public Art Collection, Hallie Ford Museum of Art, Hallmark Corporation, Henry Art Gallery, Hewlett Packard Corporation, Microsoft Corporation, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Portland Art Museum, Seattle Art Museum, Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, Swedish Health Services, Tacoma Art Museum, and Vulcan Incorporated.
