Materials are often the driving force and inspiration behind Tim Yankosky’s works of art. Tim has always been drawn to the functional wear and patina of vintage and found objects. Recently, vintage measuring tapes and their cases have captured his attention and he enjoys the challenge of repurposing these old objects for a journey in which they were never intended for. When repurposing the measuring tapes within these works, Tim often deals with themes of judgment and what it means to be “measured” by others. Tim creates a new environment for these objects to “live on” in contemporary works of art.
