Journey Through Time

'Journey Through Time' is a retrospective work on Tony RoKo's 25-year journey as an artist, one which has brought him from young Ford assembly line worker to Hour Detroit's Best Fine Artist in 2015. For this piece, RoKo has been carefully curating industrial artifacts spanning more than a century of manufacturing history.

Each of these pieces were selected, modified and fabricated onto a 5' 1/2" by 8' 1/2" frame representing a time machine - symbolic of RoKo's journey from factory floors to museum walls. The frame encompasses an image of "The Professor" on a bicycle, who is a reoccurring subject within RoKo's work, acting as his alter ego. Gears, gauges, bells, bulbs, and even a vintage telephone are in place ensuring an enlightened 'Journey Through Time'.
