Jan Yoors, Plow Share, Monumental Tapestry, US, 1977

A gorgeous tapestry by Jan Yoors featuring an abstract form inspired by an African knife on a solid grey background. “Plow Share” was included in a major retrospective at the FelixArt Museum in Brussels, Belgium in November 2012.

Yoors captured the modern spirit of the 1960s and 70s in his tapestry designs in the same way that the Abstract Expressionists were able to express it through their paintings.

Yoors work was featured in “Crafting Modernism: Midcentury American Art and Design” at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York and is in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Arts and Design, and the Art Institute of Chicago. His tapestries have received coverage in the New York Times, Modern Magazine and Metropolis Magazine. Most recently Architectural Digest (June 2014) published a feature on a Nantucket home with a large collection of Yoors art work.
