Packing Tape as Art Medium

How artist Mark Khaisman creates the images he does by using only packing tape astounds me. According to a statement by Mark on inliquid.com, he says he works on a light easel, ‘applying translucent brown packing tape on clear Plexiglas panels, the layers built up to create degrees of opacity.’ He’s fascinated with images derived from our ‘cultural heritage’ including art, architecture and movies. But he can’t do all this with just packing tape, can he? Like I said, astounding. For more information about Mark and his work, Khaisman Studio.
