Joe Yorty Creates Art Using Decades-Old Household Materials


By: Jason Soy (Rockstar) Aug 7, 12
{SummaryTitle}

Nostalgic imagery is a powerful engager, which is probably why Joe Yorty constructed these collages using vintage looking materials you could find in your grandparents’ homes. These untitled masterpieces by Yorty feature floral wallpaper as their backdrops and wood-patterned vinyl contact paper as accents. The contact paper in particular is arranged in a way that makes it look as though it’s three-dimensional, tricking viewers’ eyes as it pops off the flat background. The most prominent quality about these pieces though are their familiarity and ability to induce comfort, making viewers naturally gravitate towards each collage.

Joe Yorty is based in San Francisco and has a portfolio as eclectic as a supermarket. He regularly thrift store shops in order to acquire new materials for use in his bizarre brand of art.
