Isaac Yoder

Isaac Yoder uses several studio methods to explore themes of desire and the fragility of identity. His Bed-time Paintings is a series of gouache illustrations on vintage bed sheets that addresses memory and its effects on our present understanding of the world around us. Just as an entomologist pins the wings of a butterfly down, Isaac captures illusive moments of nostalgia manifested as fantastic creatures from childhood imagination and American kitsch. Armed with stately antlers, and delicate butterfly wings, our childhood pets and backyard critters become the guardians of our most precious and fragile memories, hopes, and fears.
