look at these amazing works crafted from packing tape by ukraine born, philadelphia-based artist mark khaisman. these large archetypal images are made from layer upon layer of translucent packing tape, applied to plexiglass and then placed in front of a light box to give the image shadow and depth. mark is inspired by people, places and things which have a classic style to them. he believes that reinterpreting these classics, using his medium and method, transforms these iconic figures and objects into a remarkable personal experience for the viewer.
this conceptual idea with realistic stylings is a tad outre and quite an intriguing combination. his medium may be pedestrian, but his technique is noteworthy and the universally appealing objects and scenes that he chooses to recreate serve to create a bridge between his art and the viewer.
mark has a solo show coming up at the woodmere art museum in philadelphia. it will be held from january 27th to march 8th. please tell me if any of you are able to go and view these incredible pieces in person!
