Mark Yankus


Cityscapes by Mark Yankus. Originally trained as a painter, and then working as a collage artist, it was not until fifteen years ago that Marc Yankus began incorporating his own photographs into his artwork. However, when he did so, it marked a turning point in his career. In many of Yankus’ photographs, textures scanned from old books and other objects are digitally layered on top of the artists’ original images. This superimposition of the old and the new, serves as a metaphor for Yankus’ wider conceptual interests. Throughout his work, the artist oscillates not only between the old and the new, the past and the present, but also between figuration and landscape.
