Packing Tape Art

I found a new favorite artist and his name is Max Zorn.  Once I found images of his work online I wanted to know where or if it would be possible for me to buy one. I searched to find out if he had a website and found out that Zorn is actually street artist whose works can be seen in Amsterdam.  Needless to say, I won’t be buying any pieces.  The first time that I saw some of his creations I thought they were beautiful paintings.  However, I found out that they are far from it.  The type of media that Zorn uses is actually packing tape and once he is finished with a piece he posts it on street lamps so that the light can shine brightly through.  Though he has made some pieces to be sold, he states on the website that you must have a some sort of light source behind it or else the piece “just looks like a piece of glass covered with some brown junk.”

    There was actually an undergrad here at Mason who’s projects were all done with Scotch tape on a black background…this reminded me of that

    I always find it fascinating when artists take materials like tape and manipulate them to have such a serene, flowing appearance.
