Packing Tape Portraits

Max Zorn is an artist that uses packing tape as his medium & he decides to recreate people with this form. It is done with meticulous layering & cutting away & I'm sure it is not an easy medium to work with, as anyone who has tried to tape up a package knows that tape is a pain. But, Zorn has a great eye & great patience & his pictures are surprisingly photo-realistic. And while it seems like using tape is a waste & pictures could be done in a different manner, I respond to the dark browns & golds that are created from the tape. Let's hope we see more from tapework & Max Zorn.
