Tim Yankosky is inspired by functional wear and patina vintage and found objects. His materials are the driving force behind his work.
He describes his process as telling a story to himself which plays out on the sculpture he is working on.
Yankosky’s latest series, which features vintage measuring tapes, deals with his experience of being “measured” and judged by others.
"I was tickled to learn that the materials used in Tim’s geometric constructions were vintage measuring tapes; this appeals to my affinity for measurement and accuracy. I also love how the simple shapes emphasize the unique beauty of a sharp edge or corner on a geometric solid."
